Holy Name Cares

We will continue to provide our much-needed emergency 3-day food hampers as long as we have food available, and strive to do so in the safest manner possible, observing all Alberta Health Service guidelines in our pantry and for our volunteers and clients. We ask for your ongoing support through monetary donations, which will receive a tax receipt. We hope that when this passes, we will be able to share in the bounty of your pantries of unused food supplies. In the interim, please offer up your prayers of support for our ministry and those most vulnerable to or already affected by the Covid-19 virus.
