New Westminster CRC and Westminster Bible Chapel are facilitating a community engagement project called, “Triple Blessing”. Our hope is to bless our shared neighbourhood during this challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is it? Extending encouragement to care-home workers in neighbourhood care-home facilities by giving a free boxed meal bought from local, small, family-run eateries struggling to stay in business during COVID-19 outbreak.
1. You are blessed when you give to those in need!
2. Workers in care homes are encouraged because you remember them (remember, about 50% of COVID related deaths are in care homes).
3. Small businesses get a lift from the financial crisis through the food bought from your giving.
For such a time as this, let us be a good neighbour by giving a practical, and tasty, gift of encouragement and care to our front-line workers!
A donation of $10 will provide one boxed meal to a care-home staff person. We hope to bless as many care-home workers as possible. 100% of your donation will go directly to purchasing meals!
Click to donate online via Paypal Giving. A donation receipt will be sent directly to you.
Contact the Church Office if you know of small family-run eateries in the church neighbourhood whose business is severely impacted by the pandemic.
Thanks for your support!
If you would like to leave a note of encouragement and thanks to be sent along with the meal,

On Thursday, April 23rd, we were able to deliver the first batch of dinner boxes from a small family-run eatery to Normanna Care Home, both located in Burnaby. We hope and pray that this has been an encouragement to all and a small token of our appreciation to the small businesses and care home staff in our community. And we hope this will be the first of many deliveries made possible through generous donations by the broader community! Let’s share this blessing with many care-homes and eateries in our neighbourhood!
