This 2, 5, or 10 km hike is a fundraiser for Feed the Hungry, Bankview Apartments and the Mustard Seed.
Bankview apartments (sister project to Acadia Place) is a project that supports housing first, a successful model that places people in a home with the supports they require to live a long and prosperous life. Bankview apartments is owned by Calgary Homeless Foundation and operated by CUPS, and has a blend of single adults, couples and families, with the majority being families who were experiencing homelessness or were at extreme risk of becoming homeless. KAIROS Calgary, an ecumenical Social Justice initiative in Calgary, is currently fundraising for the mortgage on Bankview (as we did last year for Acadia Place). Funds raised from CNOY will support this effort.
Feed the Hungry (FTH) is a Sunday Night dinner program offering a sit down meal in St. Mary’s Hall in downtown Calgary. A ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary, each week FTH offers 500 guests a three course dinner that is served by volunteers. FTH is intentional about creating an atmosphere of dignity and welcome. Proceeds will support the ongoing needs of the program.
The Mustard Seed is non-denominational Christian charity that builds community, grows hope and supports change. It has been impacting and changing lives for more than 30 years. With support from donors and volunteers, the organization provides food, clothing and shelter to men and women who are experiencing poverty and homelessness in Calgary. It also helps them find homes and jobs and improve their overall health – physically, mentally and spiritually. Proceeds will be used to provide meals, employment coaching, and housing assistance. Also, don’t forget to mark your calendar for February 12th between Services to purchase baked goods in support of the CHILL team.
