Here are just some of the ways we reach out to help in our community:
Making Quilts and Knotting Comforters
A women’s group meets the first Tuesday of each month to make quilts for sale to raise money for Mennonite Central Committee. . The comforters mostly go to people displaced from their homes.
Foodgrains Bank Project
Each year a men’s group organizes a growing project. The money raised goes to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
Volunteering at the Food Bank
After the Thanksgiving food drive, a group of women help the local Food Bank to sort it all.
Tea Ball Project
Raising money for MCC. The year 2016 will be the 50th anniversary since Floradale Mennonite Church has been making tea balls (little doughnuts) at the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale.
Growing beans and corn for the House of Friendship. We grow vegetables to share with those in need.
Out of the Cold
Volunteering at Out of the Cold in Kitchener. Young people and others help to serve meals
Short Term Mission Trips
Our most recent trip was to Guatemala in 2015 when a group helped to expand the facilities of a community/education organization called Anadesa in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala.
