According to Statistics Canada, in 2015 there were 18,680 Oakville residents living below the LIM-AT (Low Income Measure – After Tax), and thousands more just above the LIM-AT struggling to provide the basics necessities for themselves and their families.
For many of us, Christmas is a wonderful time of year when we purchase special gifts and favourite foods for our loved ones. For others the reality of their financial struggles are magnified, often leaving them feeling inadequate and hopeless.
At Kerr Street Mission they will find help and this season will be one of joy, hope and love!
For more than 14 years Kerr Street Mission has rallied the community together through our “Christmas Wonders and Beyond” program, to make sure families in need are able celebrate Christmas well.
While the “Christmas Wonders” provides support for families at Christmas, the “Beyond” provides support for the rest of the year. Your financial gift not only offers help for the present, but also hope for tomorrow.
At KSM we are committed to treating people as we would like to be treated. It is for this reason that we offer gift and food cards to our families, giving them the chance to choose the gifts and food that their families will enjoy.
With your help we can make a difference, we can provide for families in need, we can give the gift of joy this season!
