Union Gospel Mission Grade 3 Outreach


Dear Parents,                                                                                      February 25, 2019

Our grade threes have now taken a peek into what poverty looks like, sounds like, and feels like.And, thanks to Union Gospel Mission, they now also have a few ideas about how some Christians are responding to the lack around them that they see.

The grade 3 teachers have now also had the privilege of reading and hearing many different responses to this experience. When asked how they could or would like to respond to these needs, many of our children suggested giving out of our material abundance to help supply the lack they heard so much about.

As teachers, then, we would like to get behind our students’ ideas and invite families to bring any items from home, or the store, that UGM could then use to bless those neighbours of ours who are experiencing a scarcity of material things.

We will begin collecting items in our classroom immediately up until Spring Break, during which Mrs. Kuo will deliver your generosity to UGM directly. Please do not feel obligated to give. However, if you would like to give something at this time, below is a list of items that UGM has expressed a need for.

They do not need to be given as a package. Even one item alone will be helpful to someone.

Some items can be gently used (e.g. blankets and travel mugs).

Personal care items need to be new (e.g. socks).
