SECOND HELPINGS

Providing meals during life’s difficult situations and transitions.

Second Helpings is a group of volunteers who provide home-cooked meals to people in the community of Acton. If you or someone you know is currently undergoing treatment, recovering from surgery, recently lost a loved one, or is going through another kind of difficulty, we would be happy to provide fresh or frozen meals during this difficult time. This program is free of charge.

Contact 519-853-2121 or meals@actoncrc.com for details.

KNIT & CHAT

Every second Tues @ 10 am

Ladies get together to spend time knitting and socializing. You don’t have to be a senior to join this group, and you don’t have to knit either!

Many of the women who attend work on their own projects and some other’s offer their knitting to the Fall Bazaar, to raise funds for various causes.

Some make pneumonia vests which are part of a massive shipment of food, clothing and medical supplies sent in support of a non-profit effort called Canadian Food For Children.  CFFC was founded in 1985 and created by Toronto philanthropists Dr. Andrew Simone and his wife, Joan, who received the Order of Canada in 2001 for their charitable work. These vests “can actually save a life” because many premature babies born in these countries don’t have access to an incubator.

The pattern for these vests are available in this PDF. Included in the pattern is a baby’s cap.

Once knitted, the vests are sent to:
Canadian Food For Children Warehouse,
1258 Lakeshore Rd E., Mississauga, ON  L5E 3B8
(905) 274-9239
