MGUC OUTREACH CHRISTMAS -> KSM FOOD MARKET

In 1996, shortly after a subsidized apartment complex opened, the building leadership team realized that many people in their building were unable to provide basic necessities for their families. With compassion and the conviction that we are all called to ‘love our neighbours’, the KSM Food Co-op was formed.

“He’ll Always be my Dad”

Chrissy Lilly has written and published a hard cover book and the second printing is nowavailable. It is a story of two little girls, who very suddenly lost their father; and through their grief, asking questions, trying to come to terms with the unfairness of it all, and learning with guidance from their mom that, no matter what, he will always be their dad!
