Stone Soup Network Barn Raising — TICKETS ARE FREE:
On Monday, June 20th, 7-8 pm, we’re hosting a night of story and song to celebrate the Stone Soup Network and raise funds to keep ‘building new barns’ of plenty in our communities. It’s hybrid, so you choose in-person or Zoom. For COVID protocol reasons, we’re asking guests to reserve in advance so we can be good hosts. Join us in person at the beautiful Trinity St. Paul’s United Church, or participate online via Zoom.

FUNDS SUPPORT STONESOUPNETWORK.CA:
All funds raised go to support the Stone Soup Network. Incubated out of Windermere United Church, in Toronto’s Bloor West, Stone Soup Network forms strategic partnerships, within neighbourhoods, to build relationships of trust, find local solutions to inequity and sustainability, and provide those who experience exclusion (women, economically disadvantaged, homeless, socially isolated elderly, newcomers, disadvantaged youth, and others) the additional resources they need to belong. Since we began, we’ve made over $250,000 in goods and services available to neighbours in need and supported multiple neighbourhood campaigns that helped build more just, equitable, sustainable communities. Despite the pandemic challenges, the project has provided more than 1000 in-demand products and services in the last year alone. Things like virtual music classes for kids in lockdown, pharmacy gift cards for seniors and new moms, and even 13 X week-long day camp spots at the High Park Nature Center in the summer. Our June 20th Barn Raising is to help us expand to new neighbourhoods in 2022 and 2023.
If you can’t make the event, but want to make a donation, please go to https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/windermere-united-church/campaign/stone-soup-network/ where all donations are tax receipted.
OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL IS $14,000:
All support will help us continue this simple, yet powerful, approach to sharing abundance in the 21st century.
