Making Summer Count

A day trip is a low priority compared to the basics of shelter, food, clothing, and transportation that many people living in poverty struggle to afford. Taking a break, getting away, and letting go of stress provides benefits to all of us. For people living in poverty who have the hard grind of getting by on a few dollars a day, this is especially true. St Matthews Maryland Community Ministry is excited to offer a wide variety of interesting and diverse summer activities including the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Our activities will encourage family participation, integrate Indigenous cultural teachings, and enhance the quality of life of our guests.

How you can help

Volunteers Needed

Poverty creates a vicious cycle of food insecurity. The Food Supplement Program at St Matthews Maryland Community Ministry is offered in partnership with Winnipeg Harvest. Through this program, every Monday we’re able to support families in need. We’re currently looking for volunteers to help as supervisors and to unload the truck. This is a great opportunity for students on summer vacation!
