Our community’s generosity is impressive
Hey there, time traveller!

Although this is a Christmas and New Year’s season like no other, I am encouraged by the tremendous generosity of our community.
Over the month of December, I organized a food and clothing drive for Siloam Mission, and I was impressed by the enthusiastic participation of those who made donations, as our office received a constant flood of emails and phone calls from people asking us where they could drop off their items. Siloam Mission offers its heartfelt thank yous for the generous outpouring of donations from you.
Those in need across Winnipeg and the rest of the province have long required our support, especially during the Christmas season. This year has been particularly challenging, and I thank everyone for stepping up, and donating what they could, to such a great cause.
This is an excellent way for us to end such a challenging year. As we leave the year 2020 behind, and welcome 2021, we have much reason to be optimistic and hopeful. We have already begun to witness the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in our province, and I look forward to further rollout throughout the coming year.
We are seeing light at the end of a dark tunnel, and we have much reason to believe that 2021 will be better than 2020. I look forward to a time when COVID is in the rear-view mirror, when we can return to many of our favourite activities. A time when we can have family dinners, attend school concerts, go to our favourite restaurants, to the gym, watch our kids play sports, attend a church service, and ultimately enjoy some of the many pastimes that are so important to our community.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, and wish you all a Happy New Year.
