So I generally try to separate day job and this personal/music related blog, but this is news worth sharing.
The story is actually quite long, so I will cut to the climax. One of things we have been trying to do more of at FTC Canada is partner with others to help kids here at home. We are doing this a couple of ways, but here is one of them. In partnership with the Meeting House, The Salvation Army, The Freeway, the Hamilton Dream Centre, Parkview Alliance Church, Oakridge Bible Chapel, Lakeside Church, Koinonia, Hamilton City Kidz, and Faith Baptist FTC Canada has provided for the delivery of almost 700 Christmas Food boxes by Christmas this year. Our partners above are either connecting us to, or delvering the the food boxes to those in need.
- 200 of them are going to single mom families
- 200 are going to one of, if not the poorest, neighbourhoods in Canada
- 50 are going to 16 year old orphans under government support with no families
- and all of the rest are going to families with children who are in need.
Through our partners, kids in Cambridge, Hamilton, Brampton, and Oakville will be helped.
Trying to raise awareness and support for children in Canada and around the world is not a glamorous or easy job on a day to day basis. But when initiatives come together and do good, it is very rewarding.
