Holy Trinity Volunteers completed their 8th Downtown Eastside Outreach on Saturday December 21st. Volunteers brought a little Christmas cheer by making and distributing over 150 bagged lunches for our brothers and sisters in Christ. God blessed us with clear skies and a day without incident. Volunteers included Elena Murgoci, Marcia Moroz, Anna Zubchenko, Anna’s son Alex, Andrea Sawczenko, and Kelly Grace. We also had new volunteers such as Tim Redford, Tim’s Mother Jan, Nic Gardias, Austin Gangur, and Andrea’s niece Natalie. Volunteers were enthusiastic and in good spirits. Lunch recipients were pleasantly surprised and appreciative. Also this was the first time for our volunteers to use our new volunteer jackets which were donated by Donna Moroz from Sterling Enterprise Ltd. Jackets helped us identify our volunteers from a distance, helped the DTES residents identify our volunteers, kept volunteers dry and warm, and it brought a sense of pride and unity to the team. We would like to thank and acknowledge the kindness and generosity of the late Donna Moroz (Vichnaya Pamyat). This was our last Outreach for 2019. Once again we thank the Board, Fr. Roman and the Parish for their continued support of this necessary program.
