CHRISTMAS AT LAKESIDE

2023 Lakeside Christmas Giving Campaign
Christmas Food Drive in support of Hope House
In 2023, with a focus on oasis and our theme of Simply Christmas, and just the general state of our economy we wanted to have a big impact while honouring the reality of these times for many people.
If you’re relatively new, you may not know this piece of our history, but many years ago there used to be a food pantry here at Lakeside. As the need for more space grew, our congregation fundraised and purchased the building at 75 Norfolk Street in downtown Guelph.
And in 2012 Lakeside began a little organization you may have heard of – Hope House.
Those are our roots.
And while Hope House is a separate entity now, it began here in this building. We still support the work being done at Hope House and many Lakesiders over the years have volunteered there.
So, during the month of December, we collected non-perishable food items and hygiene items to donate to Hope House.
