Sunshine House

Our Share the Plate partner for December is Sunshine House, a small community drop-in and resource centre, focusing on inclusion and harm reduction in Winnipeg’s core area. They provide meals, laundry and bathing facilities, harm reduction supplies like syringes and condoms, and a meeting place where people exploring gender and/or sexual identity can gather.

Thank you for supporting the church with your funds, time, talent and energy.  Direct deposit or post-dated cheques simplify giving.
