   Newcomer Update!

  St. James is delighted to report that may of our newer congregation   

  members have found housing and jobs. Some continue to look for jobs. 

  If you, or anyone you know has a half day doing yard work or spring 

  cleaning there are many folks ready to assist you as they await permanent 

  jobs.  For a labour position 20-25 an hour is the current norm.  The 

  newcomer folks are enthusiastic hard workers. 


  We continue to be asked what items the newcomers might benefit from. 

  As summer proceeds a bicycle is a wonderful means of exploring 

  Hamilton and a means to get to work.  Laptops/computers are critically 

  important for people looking for work or taking courses.  If you have one 

  not being used there is a home for it.  Other items that are always 

  needed are pots and pans, ovenware, cutlery, microwaves, electrical

  appliances and flat screen TV's double and queen sheets and bedding. If

  you have any of these items. The newcomers are overwhelmed by your generosity.  Many thanks for all of your support.  Contact the office for more information 905-627-1424 or
