March 26, 2020: The Board decided to redirect Knox’s portion of the Lent & Easter Appeal to First United. This is an especially difficult time for the people who work and live in the DTES.
Our vision calls us to care for our neighbours, and this is one way we can help. The other half of your Special Appeal gifts remains directed to the United Nations Refugee Fund. Like First United, the UN is fighting to reduce the impact of COVID 19 on refugees and displaced people around the world.
The UN Refugee Agency, is a lifeline for people displaced by violence, conflict and persecution—helping them survive, recover and build a better future. If you’d like to read more about their work or the emergency funds to which Knox will be contributing, please click here https://www.unhcr.ca/
