Here is this month's charity-AUGUST

 

 The Saint Lawrence Centre homeless drop in program provides daytime respite, showers,snacks, laundry and other comforts to folks who sleep at the mat program, or folks who live outside otherwise. Visitors can access outreach workers for support and be referred to appropriate services.

During the warmer months we average 30 visitors a day. In winter, over 50 people visit the centre each day.

The Saint Lawrence Centre is 80% community funded, almost all our financial support comes directly from Peace Country residents. Our goal is to recruit 2000 donors who will commit to $50 a year. We call this campaign 2000strong and it will provide the bulk of our needed support.

We are named after Saint Lawrence of Rome, a man martyred after a life of serving the poor. Our vision is " Everyone can have a life changing encounter with love."
