Help A Yezedi Family

Request for Help for Yezedi Family

Please help by writing a cheque to Maple Grove United Church and indicating that it is for the Yezedi family.

You have heard from Katy and me before. We have asked you to help us help others and you did. However, every so often a case so terrible comes to our attention that we feel the need to make another special plea. This is the case of an 11 year old Yezedi girl called Waifi.

NeighbourCare, 2019

The families that we help and support through our church often visit Safetynet Children and Youth services  which assist families with clothing, diapers, furniture, household items, bicycles, tutoring and music. 

They rely on community donations to provide free items and services to financially disadvantaged families.

You can help by donating furniture, clothing, and household goods to them. Drop off boxes are at 1317 Speers Road. Drop in to see their facility. You will be quite impressed with the wonderful work this organization does –
