Siloam Mission, a connecting point between the compassionate and Winnipeg’s less fortunate, is turning 24 years old today.

During Siloam Mission’s 2009 – 2010 fiscal year, there were:

* 254,857 meals served
* 37,978 shelter stays
* 11,983 clothing room visits
* 4,762 health centre visits
* 60,339 volunteer hours served
* 3,520 emergency hampers distributed
* 8,642 hours worked by our employment-training participants

I had the honour and privilege of volunteering at Siloam Mission for the first time this year. It’s something that every Winnipegger should experience. Donations and Volunteer information can be found at
