    SCV Advent Giving

    This year, instead of making shoeboxes, we made school kits to send to a variety of countries. These are a very practical and much-requested way of helping children living in some degree of poverty. You can check out what these school kits are all about here: https://mcccanada.ca/get-involved/kits/school

    Another option for Advent giving was a donation to Canadian Foodgrains Bank…. The Government of Canada will match donations from individual Canadians in response to the Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh through its new Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund.

    Click here for more info on both of these projects.

Our drivers are volunteers from the community. The volunteers use their own cars and are reimbursed 35 cents/km for mileage from their home and return. They decide if they are available to do a drive when asked. No schedule to keep; drives are by appointment only. Click here or here for more information.
