House of Lazarus (HOL) is looking for input from the community at large. In preparation for strategic planning in the new year, HOL is conducting a short anonymous “Have Your Say” survey to find out what people know about the local mission and its programs, as well as what they believe HOL should focus on in the future.
To make it as simple as possible, the survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HouseofLazarusHaveYourSay or, for those who prefer to fill out a paper document, there are five in-person sessions scheduled throughout the surrounding area.
The in-person sessions come supper, requiring participants to register to attend. The survey itself will remain anonymous. To register, phone 613-715-2364.
The final two sessions will take place at the Winchester United Church from 6 to 8 pm on December 10, followed by the Knox Presbyterian Church in Mountain December 13 from 4 to 7 pm.
House of Lazarus is a food bank and outreach mission located in Mountain, serving hundreds of clients from surrounding communities, including all of Dundas County, Grenville County and South Ottawa. Last year, 600 people were fed through HOL’s food bank, while 2,630 people were provided with food, clothing, furniture, and household goods through its outreach programming. A community-supported venture, House of Lazarus does not rely on government funding. It’s through HOL thrift stores, grants, donations, and fundraisers that its projects and programs happen.
