Lunch by George wishes to thank Bishop Michael Oulton and the staff of the Anglican Diocese of Ontario for their generous donations to the OSGK Clothing Depot at St. George's Cathedral in Kingston.
During the season of giving, Diocesan staff generously collected and donated food, clothing, and monetary donations at their Christmas Fête in December. Clothing Coordinator for the OSGK Clothing Depot, Debbie Docherty had the following to say: “We have been happily overwhelmed by the generosity of the many parishes who made donations to Lunch by George. The clothing and food donations are very much appreciated by the guests who come to Lunch by George. Many, many thanks!”
OSGK – Lunch by George relies on donations such as these to continue providing hot, nutritious meals, as well as warm winter clothing to the marginalized citizens of Kingston. Since 1997, Lunch by George has been caring for these citizens for 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year. 2022 was by far our busiest year, serving over 23,000 meals, and providing clothing, boots, coats, toiletries, and other items to many people “living rough” on the streets of Kingston who otherwise would have no access to warm winter clothing.
On behalf of all of the staff, volunteers, and the Board of OSGK, we wish to express our gratitude for the generous donations provided by the staff of the diocese.
Blake St. John, administrator, OSGK
