Hope Booy is a young adult at Sonlight CRC in Regina. She was awarded a COVID-19 grant from World Renew and Diaconal Ministries Canada to put together a backpack of essential supplies for the homeless people she saw in her community. Together with her deacons and youth group, and with donations from the community, Hope has begun making bags and giving them away through the shelters in Regina. 

Way to go Hope! Check out the story below!

Have a great idea to engage in your community? Need help?

While the Covid-19 Grants are no longer available, Diaconal Ministries is still here to help! Our NewGround program helps churches and deacons love their community. This type of project is also a great example of what a young person could do with our Youth Justice grants, through the NewGround program. Check it out today!
