This past summer "Gords Place" in St. Catharines shut its doors for good. For the past 12 years Gords Place held an amazing community dinner every year on Christmas Day, with this spot closing it leaves about 500 people without a place to go this coming Christmas Day to eat. Our non profit organization Niagara United Bridges Of Hope is has joined the DSBN, The DeDivitiis Family, Small Scales Farms and many other community organizations. Some amazing people within our community have reached out to help make this Christmas lunch a thing again.
We know first hand how much this means to so many within our region, not only for the dinner but just to have the connection with people on Christmas.
With the support of our amazing community and the people who live within it we know we can make this amazing and magical. Our hope is to make many people happy as well as send them off with full bellies this Christmas Day.
The lunch will be serve between 11-2 at Harriet Tubman School in St. Catharines. There will be music, amazing food, drinks, and a toy for every child. Lunch is open to everyone, and we hope you will join us for a Christmas Day of magic.
We have set the amount to $5000 to help
cover the costs that occur to hold such an event. We are also accepting toy donations.
We will keep the page updated so that everyone can see the progress along the way. Also if you feel more comfortable donating directly please email or etransfer [email redacted]
TO EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED OR SIGNED UP TO VOLUNTEER:
Thank you ♥️ It wouldn’t be possible without all of you, this is what community looks like. And thank you for your support and encouragement, it really is magical.
