CSAE Host Committee Charity of Choice
Emmaus House is a joint food sharing venture with the Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, St. Michael's Anglican Church, the Roman Catholic Basilica, St. Patrick's, and St. Thomas'. Emmaus services 350-400 requests per month which includes on average 600-700 adults and children.
Each of the five Parishes provides volunteers who staff Emmaus House. It is one of several food banks served by Community Food Sharing and is the main food bank for the Downtown St. John's area. Contributions are made monthly by the participating churches and food is donated by parishioners. The parishes provide approximately 50-60% of the funding annually with the remainder coming through donations. A lot of the food is collected from various food drives throughout the year which often means there is a good supply at certain times of the year for example Thanksgiving and Christmas but there are often lean times in between. All donations are gratefully received.
Personal items are also gratefully accepted including
To support Emmaus House, consider packing a few of the items in need when you're on your way to St. John's for CSAE 2017!
