Many ways to help those in need

On February 24, Niagara College, Welland Campus, hosted the Coldest Night of the Year Walk event. It was a great walk in support of Open Arms Mission Welland, which assists vulnerable families and individuals in having food on their tables. There are many ways you can help the people struggling in our community. 

Open Arms Mission Welland is a volunteer-driven organization providing food, personal care, and other items to those in need. For more information on donating or volunteering, please visit

As you can see, there are many ways to support those in need in our city. I encourage you to get involved and help ensure that every person in need has access to healthy and nutritious food all year round.
