Who do we help ?
hundreds of needy families of Dutch heritage living in Ontario
receive during the first week in December, an unexpected generous
food parcel from the Committee Netherlands Bazaar.
This parcel adds warmth and joy to an otherwise bleak Christmas.
It is the Committees way of letting the less fortunate know,
they have not been forgotten by the community at large.
While every year in December, the distribution of the parcels
uses up most of the funds the Committee has on hand, during the
summer many children from needy families are given the opportunity
to attend a one-week stay at a Summer Camp. Thanks to the generosity
of the Bazaar supporters, we were able to distribute more than
800 food parcels over the past two years, and 150 children from
needy families were given the opportunity to attend summer camp.
