Operation Christmas Card is a compassionate outreach to the homeless of the Greater Toronto Area. For the past seventeen years Chapelhill Ministries has spent Christmas Eve on the streets of Toronto sharing the love and compassion of Christ with the homeless in a very personal and relational way.
The objectives of this ministry is to spend time engaging the unfortunate in conversation about their needs and condition, and offer immediate assistance, recommendations, and sharing the goodwill of the season.
Each person is given a Christmas card with a personalize message of encouragement, love, and wishes for a better tomorrow. Each card is filled with essentials for their well-being, both physically and spiritually. The cards include gifts to ensure they are warm and have the means for nourishment, and a small amount of cash for dignity purposes.
