The Outreach Committee reaches out in the community to take on projects as well as inviting the community to participate in programs at Springbank United Church. Below are several initiatives we're currently involved in:

Inn from the Cold

From September to June, volunteers from SBUC serve lunch the 2nd Friday of each month at Inn from the Cold in downtown Calgary. Volunteers are needed for kitchen duty (physically demanding) and serving on the line. If you're interested in volunteering, please sign up on the sheet at the back of the sanctuary on Sundays.

Mitten Tree

During Advent, we have a "Mitten Tree" on which we collect a great supply of mittens, hats, scarves, and toques to donate to families in need (previously, to Brenda's House and The Mustard Seed in Calgary).

Food Bank Collection

We support the Cochrane Food Bank by setting aside the first Sunday of every month for the collection of non-perishable food items (though the bin is available in our narthex for donations at any time).
