**Thank you to everyone who was so generous in collecting Thrifty’s stamps for Vivo Knives over the last four months. Together with our friends at the Lutheran Church of the Cross and Broad View United, we earned 140 knives for the Shelbourne Community Kitchen! Many of you enlisted the help of friends and neighbours in this community venture. We received several thank you notes tucked in with the stamps letting us know how collecting stamps for others was helping you to feel connected during this challenging time. The 140 knives will be shared with the Kitchen’s participants as part of the Shelbourne Community Kitchen’s “Feel The Love Campaign” that kicked off in early February. Thank you for supporting the ongoing work of the Shelbourne Community Kitchen.
Information about the COVID Vaccination Schedule is posted at the News page of St. Luke’s website. Please note that the scheduling of groups for vaccinations may change based on vaccine availability and transmission rates.
Thrifty Foods Smile Cards – Thank you to everyone who has been using their Smile Cards. We have received a payment of $194.76 this month, bringing our total to date to $1,381.59, which is almost half way to our project goal of $2,800.00. This year the money will go towards repairing some of our rock walls. If you don’t yet have a Smile Card, please call the office and we will arrange to get one to you.
