Ohsweken Baptist Church hosted its first Community Unity fundraising event last weekend in support of Six Nations Child and Family Services’ Christmas Toy Giveaway. Church members organized a ‘by donation barbecue’ and raised $1243.40 for SNCFS, calling it “Christmas in July.”
The church aims to raise money for a different group within the community each month with plans for the Six Nations Community Food Bank and the Golden Spoon next.
“We were truly blessed by the support of our community,” said Theresa Mt. Pleasant. “We’re going to hold another by donation barbecue in August and will donate the proceeds to the food bank. Then we plan on hosting a bake sale for the Golden Spoon.”
