Newark Neighbours

Our sincere thanks go out to this wonderful and generous community we live in.

Our volunteers filled 25 Thanksgiving dinner baskets for our clients.

We would like to send out our thanks to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Walker’s Fruit Farms, Kent Heritage Farms, George Webber and Audrey Pellet, Budapest Bakeshop, Meridian Credit Union, Barb and Ed McCarthy, Julia Buxton-Cox, EKO Couture, Vineridge Academy – students and all the anonymous donors who dropped off cash donations, turkeys, treats and food for our dinner baskets.

It is always heartwarming to see our community come together to share with others in need.

We are now planning for Christmas. Sign up for food clients begins on Nov. 1 and registration ends Dec. 10. If you are not a Newark Neighbours client but require assistance, please bring in your 2018 Notice of Assessment, proof of address and a utility bill with name and address when you come in to register.

Our Thrift Store is no longer open on Sundays. We have returned to our regular hours of Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our Thrift Shop is at 310 John St. (behind the Riverbend Inn). For more information, please visit our website,

We appreciate and value the generosity of our community for your donations which allow us to continue our mission of “Serving our Community with Compassion, Care and Concern”. Making this mission a reality would not be possible without all of our volunteers whose time and effort we greatly appreciate.
