support these initiatives
We have opened designated funds so that you can donate directly to either Starfish Pack or SDBC Tutoring. You can give online via our online donation form from Canada Helps by clicking the button below. Giving can also be done on Sunday mornings or in the church office during the week (M-Th; 9AM-4PM). Donations must be designated as "Starfish Pack" or "SDBC Tutoring" in order to go towards these funds.
"Helping children receive healthy meals."
Hundreds of children in BC go to school on Monday having had no food over the weekend. Starfish Pack was created in response to this need. It costs $575 to sponsor a child for one year of this program, which will provide a backpack each Friday throughout the school year filled with 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and some healthy snacks. We’re starting with two schools in Tsawwassen, but our desire is to support every student who needs our support in South Delta. The more money we raise, the more children we’ll be able to help. We hope to bring this program to every school that needs Starfish Pack.
“Helping children receive the education they need.”
Our tutoring program will include trained tutors in the Orton-Gillingham approach, which has helped many dyslexic children improve their literacy. This sort of tutoring is normally very expensive, so we’re excited to make this quality supplemental education accessible to children who experience learning challenges due to dyslexia and/or other learning disabilities.
