Heart and Soles for Kids!
Do you remember being a kid and wanting so hard to fit in with your friends at school? Imagine what that would have been like... without a pair of shoes!

In partnership with a Calgary elementary schools, we are gathering new shoes to make sure elementary school aged children have shoes in school. You can help by donating new running shoes in sizes for students in K to six. Drop them off at a table in the entrance way. New shoes only, please. Tax receipt abailable with receipt of purchase in the box.

February 24 - Coldest Night of the Year
Imagine this cold and snow... alone and on the street! Walk in solidarity with our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness. Funds raised support Karios Calgary’s fundraising effort to pay down the mortgage on the Bankview apartments, an affordable housing initiative, and that awesome program called Feed the Hungry. For more info, www.coldestnightoftheyear.org.

Collective Kitchen
Monthly we collaborate by offering space, kitchens, experience and skill with women and young children to prepare nutritious and affordable meals to both share and take away. Your help is welcome, especially in the provision of child care so that families can attend: even an hour of care would be a huge help. If you'd like to become a part of this partnership, please contact the church office or email office@christchurchcalgary.org.
