 The Benevolent Fund provides food cards to those with emergency needs. It is available to residents of Ajax and is administered by the Minister. In some cases, emergency shelter is provided at local motels.

 Collections for the Benevolent Fund take place during most of the Communion Services, but donations are welcome at any time.
   
We also regularly forward food items to the local FOOD BANKS. Occasionally there are some food iitems still at the church which can be given out to those who drop by.
   
Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
Matthew 25: 37-40, NRSV (New Revised Standard Version)
