PROGRAMMING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

All of us at Fontbonne Ministries are very aware of the many needs our programs meet for a diverse range of participants every day.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it has become necessary to evaluate how and when our programs are delivered to ensure the safety of those we serve, our volunteers and our staff.  After consultation with our leadership, colleague agencies providing similar services, and following the guidelines provided by Toronto Public Health and the Ontario Ministry of Health, we are announcing these program cancellations, effective immediately and in effect until further notice.

Village Mosaic – closed.
Studio on the Hill – closed.
Faith Connections – programming being adapted for digital platforms.
In Good Company – no in-person visiting; contact will be by telephone only.
Mustard Seed – all programming cancelled. Take out lunch service available Friday and Saturday 11:30am to 1pm.
Volunteer Appreciation Event – The Volunteer Appreciation event scheduled for April 26 has been cancelled. Volunteers will be celebrated by each ministry individually when regular programming resumes.

Programs which are still operating on a modified basis may be cancelled or closed at any time should directives from public health or other government agencies mandate.

Our thanks to the staff and volunteers of Faith Connections, Mustard Seed, In Good Company and Village Mosaic for their dedication and outreach to their communities in these challenging times, and for continuing to do the ordinary with extraordinary care.

We will update this information as and when the situation changes.  We thank you for your patience, and hope to have all our programs operating once again in the near future.

Doing the ordinary with extraordinary care … thanks to Amy Zimmer for the whimsical reminders about physical distancing that will be attached to the healthy bag lunches Mustard Seed serves from 791 Queen Street East on Fridays and Saturdays from 11.30 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.

And thanks to the entire Mustard Seed crew for ensuring our most vulnerable continue to be cared for in these challenging times.

"Generosity soaks everyone with its wonderful energy." (Unknown)

We're standing in a downpour today. Great big thanks to Pizza Pizza for their generous donation of slices for our lunch program today … it's a wonderful treat for our community and another example of our friends and supporters stepping up to help us all through the challenges of COVID-19.

"You gotta have friends". (Bette Midler)

At Mustard Seed, we are beyond fortunate to have friends and partners throughout the community who are here for us in times of need. A HUGE shout-out to the Glen Rhodes Food Bank for their recent generous donation of goodies to augment our offerings for our Friday and Saturday bag lunch program. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Together, we'll support some of the most vulnerable of our community through rapidly evolving challenges of COVID-19.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we regret that the Volunteer Appreciation event scheduled for Sunday, April 26 has been cancelled.

Each program will be holding an appreciation event for its volunteers once regular activities have been resumed -- watch this space for further details!

While we won't be gathering as a group to celebrate our volunteers this year -- know that we celebrate each one of you, and your many contributions of our work every day.
