MOUNTAIN— A bit of breakfast, a chat with friends, time for a game or puzzle — Linking Hands is introducing two informal morning Drop-In Centres to Dundas County.
Beginning Tuesday, September 10, the South Dundas Drop-In Centre will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Morrisburg Pentecostal Tabernacle (MPT). Then, on Wednesday, September 11, the North Dundas Drop-In Centre will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Winchester United Church.
This new weekly initiative is free and open to everyone in the community with South Dundas Drop-In happening every Tuesday morning at MPT and North Dundas Drop-In happening every Wednesday morning at Winchester United. Breakfast will be available and attendees decide whether they want to socialize with others, participate in any games, or talk to a staff or volunteer members about services and resources available to Dundas County residents.
“This initiative falls under our Healthy Living Working Group,” Linking Hands coordinator Sandy Casselman said. “Our focus is to be inclusive and welcoming to all, providing a safe space for people to hang out, enjoy a delicious breakfast, and, maybe, meet new people and have a little fun. We will also have trained staff and volunteers who can assist residents in finding needed services or resources locally.”
An initiative of House of Lazarus, Linking Hands focuses on reducing and eliminating poverty in all its forms in Dundas County. This is done with the help of many community, agency, and business partners throughout the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry and the City of Cornwall.
