Newark Neighbours

The outpouring of support for our not-for-profit organization from both within our community and outside this past summer continues to amaze us. 

Our heartfelt gratitude to all the individual donors as well as Bernie & Clinton Mutual Insurance Company, Streams of Life Ministry, Colaneri  Estate Winery, the Niagara Community Foundation, Royal Bank, Loblaws, St. Andrew’s Church, Hendrick’s Valu-mart and St. Andrew’s Glen neighbourhood. 

We are now preparing Thanksgiving food hampers for our food clients. 

As a result of the recent successful community food drive, our clients will have an extra special Thanksgiving dinner. 

In order for us to prepare the food hampers, our Thrift Shop will be closed from Wednesday, Oct. 7 until  Wednesday, Oct. 14, when it will operate from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.   

Newark Neighbours continues to support students who live in Niagara-on-the-Lake with their continuing education at college or university with our bursary program. 

We are proud to announce this year’s bursaries have been awarded to Bethany Potl from Laura Secord High School, Felicia Mori from Eden High School, and Kate Gardner and Noah Lavoie, both from Holy Cross High School.    

Please check our website at www.newarkneighbours.ca for updates regarding store hours and donations. 

We ask that you contact us if you know of anyone who is in need of food, clothing or household items that we may be of assistance to.  Send us an email at newarkneighbours1@gmail.com or call 905-468-3519. 

Our team of volunteers at Newark Neighbours wishes everyone a happy Thanksgiving holiday.

Laura Gibson is the chair of Newark Neighbours.
