This August St. Matthew’s House is launching its inaugural “Hunger Does NOT Take Vacation” campaign and we need help collecting non-perishable food items for those in need in Hamilton.

Summer is a busy time of year for food banks, even if it’s not the first season that comes to mind. Since the beginning of June St. Matthew’s House has served 4,245 people, including 1,494 children at its food banks.

Please consider holding a food drive sometime in the month of August. It can run for a weekend, a week or the whole month…it’s up to you! Spread the word with your family, friends, co-workers and neighbours. Once you’ve collected the food give us a call and we’ll pick it up! Your gesture will mean the world to the families we serve.

If you’re going to be away this month but you still want to get involved, consider making a donation to our food bank. Your gift will support a family, child, individual or senior in need.  You can make an online donation, send a cheque to 414 Barton St E, or call 905-523-5546 ext. 228.

Thank you for taking time to consider this request. Your support would be invaluable to those in need in our community!

From all the staff at St. Matthew’s House, we hope you enjoy what’s left of summer.
