Christmas Spirit of Giving

This Advent season, we will continue our tradition of collecting non-perishable items for S.T.A.R. In addition to food items, you may choose to bring in toiletries, cleaning supplies etc. Also, please remember kid-friendly foods / treats. Please check the expiry dates on the food items.

We will be collecting the goods from 24 November until 12 December.

S.T.A.R. offers support ,including spiritual guidance, for any person infected or affected with HIV/AIDS. They also have support groups for loved ones of people living with HIV/AIDS. Through “The Lighthouse” they provide counseling by experienced and caring volunteers and even provide housing for HIV positive persons before the need of hospitalization.

Thank you in advance for your generous support of these efforts and may God bless your generosity!
