BFB - BLUFFS FOOD BANK
 
We wish to extend a special thanks to all who made such generous donations during the Christmas Season.  Your generosity was "over the top" and our shelves are full.
 
WHITE SUGAR is the requested food item for January and February.  This will be a SWEET treat for our families in January and February.  Sugar has been "on sale" in recent weeks, so you may even find a bargain for your bucks.
 
Please visit us at our website for more information about how you too can make a financial donation and receive an automatic income tax receipt.  We will gratefully use these donations to purchase sugar and fill some of those nutritious holes to complete hampers when we find things for wholesale and sale prices.
 
Blessings,
Gail Barkic (Volunteer CEO)

The large knitted panels, designed in the style of stained-glass windows, look at the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic Faiths – and took Kirk an incredible 15 years to knit.  The play tells the story of Kirk’s artistic and spiritual journey working on this ambitious project about interfaith empathy, and has been seen across Ontario at theatres, churches, and the Aga Khan Museum.
