God always provides! As we were preparing to puchase supplies for our High School Lunch Program, Family Services had a large donation of the exact food item that is on our menu for tomorrow! It's amazing how that worked out!

Did you know.... The First Salvation Army Kettle in Canada was in St. John’s, Newfoundland It was the Christmas of 1906 that the first kettle was introduced into Newfoundland. The kettle was suspended on a tripod in front of No. 1 Citadel on New Gower Street, St. John’s.

A Big Thank You to two events that have gave donations to the Food Bank. Last Friday the St. John's Temple VBS program collected cereal, this is such a simple item that we often take for granted but so very important to the food bank. Also, last Sunday we were at the Teddy Bear Picnic collecting food, and despite the heat people came and brought along an item or two for us. Thank you to anyone who brought something along at these two events your help is greatly appreciated. The food bank would be lost without donations from such kind hearted people. :)
