Since 1987, Siloam Mission has provided meals, clothing, and hope services to Winnipeg’s poor and homeless community. Siloam Mission programs and volunteers support the health, growth, skill development and transition for our less fortunate. In the last year alone, over 100 people transitioned from living on the street to having a place to live, with hundreds more finding shelter, clothing, vision care, dental care and job opportunities.
Emergent Winnipeg has been partnering with Siloam Mission Winnipeg for many years, through financial donations and team volunteer events. Over this time, our employee volunteers have participated in donation sorting, serving meals, baking and donating in drives for food and essential personal items. Emergent is also proud to sponsor and organize the annual BackPack campaign, where each of the 110 patrons, on Christmas Day, receive a backpack stuffed with some of the essential items for daily living and each of the 85 people in transitional housing receives a unique gift to support their needs.
Emergent is committed and proud to have a long-term partnership with Siloam Mission. In each event, we see firsthand how impactful our donations and time are, how grateful everyone is and the difference that is being made.
