The Christmas Cheer committee anticipates the need for support at Christmas will be great again this year. The decision was made to support 175 families, requiring an estimated budget of $15,000. As with last year, there will be no actual food hampers. Instead we will be providing gift cards, reducing risk and concerns associated with the pandemic. The Rideau Park congregation and community have been tremendously generous in its support of this initiative, and we hope this year will be no different. Donations can be made by e-transfer to “”; by credit card through, or by cheque payable to “Rideau Park United Church”. Please indicate that the donation is for Christmas Cheer. If you have any questions, please contact Gretchen Conrad at 613-744-7344 or by email.
