Thanks to your generosity, Trillium collected 136 cans of soup during Lent in support of Food4Kids Waterloo Region which receives, packages, and distributes 1,000 food packages weekly through donations, and volunteers drive the food to schools and homes.

St. John’s Nursery School also helped to collect over 30 cans of soup and will be delivering the soup to Food4Kids later this week.
