For many years St Thomas has been a part of the Out of the Cold program. Barrie Out of the Cold provides safe, respectful and welcoming overnight accommodation and meals to the homeless from November to April.
Please note that Janice & Ernie Greenwood will be at the Church parking lot every third Saturday of the Month from 12:00 - 12:30 pm to pick up sandwiches, drink boxes, bottled water, and any other items you could provide for the Busby Street Outreach Van.
If you have any questions please contact Janice & Ernie Greenwood. Anything you can do is so very much appreciated by this important Mission.
