AFC’s Kids Helping Kids Fund is a proud supporter of the Streets of Hope Calendar, a joint ministry between Holy Trinity Anglican Church, the Knights Templar and the Old Strathcona Youth Society in Edmonton, AB. This calendar is a project by kids for kids. Street kids photographed life on the street accompanied by a caption relating to hope. Here’s what one person said: “What is hopeful about winter? Maybe just that you know spring will come.” Another said, “Even a ghetto can be pretty.” To purchase this beautifully moving calendar, contact edmonton.anglican.org.
Ground has broken at St. John the Evangelist in Ottawa, ON for their Open Doors Project, supported in part by AFC. This renovation to the church entrance and narthex will create a more welcoming environment in this busy, downtown parish.
The kitchen at the Church of St. Simon-the-Apostle in Toronto, ON was recently renovated with the help of the Kids Helping Kids Fund. The St. Jamestown Homework Club, which meets at St. Simon's, uses the kitchen to prepare healthy snacks for the children involved in the club. The kitchen was badly in need of repair, and is now able to offer a clean, safe environment for food preparation, in turn allowing kids to get the energy they need to learn.
