Beacon House

is a non-profit Interfaith Society sponsored by the Bedford-Sackville Association of Churches. Beacon House endeavors to provide four things to low and fixed income people: Food, Clothing, Furniture, and Counselling. Beacon House was established in 1985 as a response to these needs.

To support them in their endeavor, First Sackville collects food items on behalf of Beacon House.  It also provides volunteers to staff the Beacon House store on a rotating basis, usually every few months on a Saturday. Activities include sorting and placing items on racks, helping customers find things, and keeping the store in good order. Contact Susan Moriarty for details.  Volunteers are also needed for the Food Bank.  Visit the Beacon House website for details and application forms.
