The Outreach Committee is a very busy and active group of volunteers here at Scarborough Bluffs United Church.  We meet almost monthly throughout the year and work to assist our community, our city and the world at large.

Here are some of the ways in which Outreach provides support:

  • We help our local food bank with regular donations of non-perishable food, cash and grocery store gift cards. info@schcontario.ca
  • We support the requests and needs of The Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities as needed. info@schcontario.ca
  • Each October, we hold “Undie & Socks Sundays” which is a project to collect new underwear and socks for distribution to those in need throughout the Scarborough community.
  • At the end of the summer, we purchase backpacks and school supplies for students at the Family Residence on Kingston Road https://211central.ca  and the East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club. esbgc.ca
  • Our special offerings collected annually during the seasons of Lent and Advent are allocated to a charity each year. Several of our recent recipients include:
  • Roz’s Healing Place
  • Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank dailybread.ca
  • Global Medic ca
  • Every Autumn, we host a Giant Used Book Sale and allocate the receipts to various Outreach projects.
  • During the Christmas season, we collect warm winter hats, mittens and scarves to be given to local schools and the East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club. In December, we also provide gift cards for family members staying at the Family Residence on Kingston Road.  This enables them to purchase some holiday treats.

Mission & Service Fund

  • The Mission & Service (M&S) Fund represents our collective way to be God’s presence in the world- to be the church, to love and serve, to seek justice, to live with respect in creation. It gives us a collective voice in advocating change, justice and peace whether through the Canadian Government or working with our ecumenical partners.  The M&S Fund ensures that we are participating together in all of this work and more.
  • We inform the congregation of ongoing M&S programmes hosted locally and globally by sharing “Mission and Service Stories”. https://united-church.ca>mission-and-service.ca
