Gold Party

Kash for Karats

Thursday, April 4 — 7:00 pm


A Gold Party is a chance for you to turn your unwanted gold into cash. A representative from the company, Gold Party Princess, will evaluate your gold and offer you money on the spot. You will actually go home with cash. How good is that? You can sell all karats of gold: yellow, white, pink and green. They also buy platinum and sterling silver (925 or higher).  You can sell new and used single earrings, broken & dented jewelry, rings, bracelets, necklaces, coins, silver spoons, etc., anything you don't want, or as Marie Kondo would say, “no longer sparks joy!”

If you aren’t sure of the authenticity of your pieces, bring them anyway. Jewelry that is set with stones is acceptable and they will offer a price for the piece as is or you can have the stones removed prior to the party. You are under no obligation to sell your jewelry if you change your mind. For more information, contact Val Greenfield:  416-621-3656. or valgreenfield50@gmail.com.

Make a Friend Instantly

Why You Need to Wear Your Name Badge

Wearing a name badge at Islington reflects our values of being an open and welcoming community. A name badge is:

1. A permission slip to talk to someone new.
2. A sign of friendliness and openness.
3. A worry-reducer – the other person can relax about remembering your name.
4. A reminder to be open and transparent.
5. An invitation to connect and build relationship.

Name badges are available to order this Sunday after both services in Stewart East Hall, or by emailing Murray Wood: patmurraywood@gmail.com. Suggested donation is $10.00.

Out of the Cold Dinner
Thanks to Our Volunteers

 
Thanks to volunteers from Islington United Church for serving at the Out of the Cold program at All Saints Kingsway Church on Friday, November 23. Your help was greatly appreciated.




 

Seeking Overnight Volunteers
for the Out of the Cold Program

Fridays - 10:00 pm to 2:30 am & 2:30 to 7:00 am

The Out of the Cold program at All Saints Kingsway Church (Bloor St. and Prince Edward Drive) runs every Friday night until early April.

Volunteers are needed to stay at the church to ensure guests have a safe and secure environment overnight. There are two shifts: the early one is from 10 pm to 2:30 am and the late one is from 2:30 am to 7 am. Volunteers are needed for both shifts. There are usually four volunteers on the early shift and three volunteers on the late shift.

New volunteers are always scheduled with experienced volunteers and overnight volunteers are scheduled well in advance. Team Leads will ensure volunteers are completely prepared for their shifts.

If you are able to help or want to know more, contact nina.arsenault@sympatico.ca.
