St. Matthew's-Maryland Community Ministry Needs Your Support


SMM Community Ministry logo


With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus, St. Matthew’s Maryland has experienced a sharp increase in the number of people needing food support. With the daily drop-in closed, the ministry is now providing bag lunches for 150 people per day! Need for food hampers and Emergency Food packages has also increased significantly. You can help ensure that West End families can continue to access these important food supports by providing food or financial assistance:


Financial support

St. Matthew’s Maryland’s most pressing need is for Financial Donations to buy the supplies to make lunches. Donations can be made at their CanadaHelps page. When you make a donation please indicate in the message box that it is for St. Matthew’s Maryland Community Ministry.
