Christmas is Coming

Christmas seems to be arriving faster this year than other years. Six weeks away! We are doing our Christmas baskets again this year with gifts for the kids. We are looking for families who will sponsor a family. This means providing Christmas gifts that are age and gender appropriate for the kids in our 111 families.

If you are interested in sponsoring a family, contact us at On Rock and we will put you in touch with Kathryn, who is coordinating our gift program. Contact us at onrock@onrock.org

The only time of year where we spend money on food is at Christmas. We buy turkeys, chickens and frozen vegetables in order to supply traditional Christmas dinners for our families. If you would like to contribute to this, send a cheque to On Rock, attn:Christmas Baskets.

Thank you and Peace,

Thank you North Face

My friend Steph called last night, telling me that North Face collected food as part of their admission to the big warranty sale this year. He said the food was ours if we wanted it. Obviously, I jumped on it. Today we went and picked up four large containers that were too heavy for one person to lift. Amazing!

Thank you North Face. This week our families will eat better because of you.
