ShareLife is the charitable fundraising arm of the Archdiocese of Toronto. Money raised from the annual appeal goes to support ShareLife's 34 agencies, helping more than 100,000 people each year.
There is a wealth of information on their Web site (www.sharelife.org), including a detailed listing of where the funds are used (click on "Who Benefits?" on their Web site).
How to make donations:
- Through OLPH: please write cheque (payable to "ShareLife - Our Lady of Perpetual Help") and drop off in collection basket or with the Parish Secretary at the office.
- Online through the ShareLife Web site: www.sharelife.org
The goal for 2012 was $130,000 but the final total was $133,500. The pastor thanks all parishioners who helped in this endeavour.
Our parish goal for 2013 is $140,000
The ShareLife campaign for 2013 started at OLPH with the popular Pancake Breakfast on Feb. 10th where all the men (young and not so young) prepared, served and cleaned up afterwards. See pictures in our website's PHoto Gallery.
Don't forget that you may donate on-line. OLPH still gets the credit for your donation.
Youth Zone: there is a section in the ShareLife Web site (click on Youth Zone) that invites young people to make a difference in the lives of others, invite a friend to get involved, and finally, provide all sorts of cool ideas that will help ShareLife help you help others!
