West London Alliance Church

After an incredibly successful first round for our WLA Food Drive, we've decided to do it again!

Not only was this a wonderful opportunity to bless the Northwest London Resource Centre, but we kept hearing stories of how this has brought neighbourhoods together. Your faithfulness to disperse flyers to people on your street, around the corner and the next road over, showed the love of Christ with your many neighbours! Way to go WLA! 

FOOD DRIVE

If you didn’t know, WLA partners with the Northwest London Resource Centre to help with the Emergency Food Cupboard once a month. During this pandemic, the food cupboard remains open to help local families access the resources they need (food, diapers, hygiene items, etc.). At this time of uncertainty, the disconnected families who are already struggling in poverty are the ones who are at greater risk. The support offered through this food cupboard helps them stay afloat and we consider it an honour to help these families, created in God’s image and loved by Him, through our partnership with the Resource Centre.

We will be heading up a food drive to gather items to donate to the Resource Centre. Here is how it will work:

  1. Download the attached form or draft up your own version.
  2. Fill in the gaps as they pertain to you (name, address, phone number, dates).
  3. Distribute the letters to the houses in your neighbourhood. Make sure you continue to practice social distancing and deliver flyers to mailboxes. Consider emailing them if you have their emails.
  4. On the date you indicated in your letter, please have one member of your household gather the items left on front porches using a glove. Please sanitize throughout.
  5. I (Graham) can collect food from your house whenever it is convenient for you. I will bring the food to the Resource Centre directly.
  6. You may want to engage with this another week. Please feel free to contact me to arrange pick up.

Please email Graham if you have any questions.

This method of food donation has been approved by the Middlesex-London Health Unit.
