Outreach:  The quiet strength of our Outreach Team that holds up the life and work of our Community of Faith in the wider community, is uniquely situated to help us identify where additional financial contributions that you may wish to make during this epidemic, would be helpful.  In addition to a decision made by Council to increase our Outreach budget by 50% to a total of $10,500, and an agreement to revisit this should it be required, we encourage you to consider donating directly to some of the organization’s that assist others and which the Outreach committee has helped.  If you have any questions, please email us at office@kuc.ca and please put OUTREACH in the subject line, and Penny Gelinas, Chair of Outreach or a member of the Outreach Team will be in touch.
In the meantime, if you are considering a donation to an organization helping the most vulnerable among us, you are encouraged to connect with them directly.  To help facilitate this, here is a list of the various groups with their contact information.
