Hillcrest United Church

Mission and Service

Hillcrest United Church – Hornby Pastoral Charge is pleased to acknowledge the generous financial support from the James and Barbara Snow Family Foundation at the Oakville Community Foundation, a registered charitable public foundation serving the Oakville Community www.theocf.org

Ongoing fund raising activities allow us to donate to several groups each year.

We support several local charities including:

Darling Home for Kids, Milton - www.darlinghomeforkids.ca

For the past several years, we have made a donation to the Darling Home for Kids.

"The Darling Home for Kids, situated in Milton, Ontario, is a place of joy, filled with the smiles and laughter of children engaging in unique and enriching experiences and exploring new and exciting activities. Medically fragile children receive wonderful care in a beautiful, warm and home-like environment, which provides comfort and a break to families facing the daily challenges of caring for a child with complex medical needs. Families are supported in knowing that there is a continuum of care from respite through to palliation and, when needed, end of life care."

Links2Care, Georgetown

Sleeping Children Around the World (S.C.A.W.)

Each year, Hillcrest United collects its loose change on a monthly basis and then buys bed kits for needy children around the world. Last year, 5 beds kits, each costing $35 each were delivered by S.C.A.W.

Our bed kits went to 5 children in Honduras.

Several times a year, a box is put out to collect non-perishable food items to be donated to those in our community in need through the local food banks.
