About WOLFVILLE AREA INTERCHURCH COUNCIL
The Wolfville Area Inter-Church Council was founded in 1970 as an ecumenical Christian commitment to address perceived spiritual and social needs. The Council has spun off many projects: the Dorcas Shoppe to provide inexpensive clothing for low income families (since closed); Senior Citizen Housing; the Meals-on-Wheels program; and the Interchurch Housing Society, which created decent affordable housing for poor families and whose success made it the subject of two National Film Board documentaries.
Since 1973 WAICC with various community organizations has operated a Christmas Food Program. In 1979 a year round Emergency Food Relief program was added. WAICC now provides other relief such as emergency delivery of heating oil and recently started contributing to the School Breakfast Program. WAICC also operates a Food Bank. We are organizing the community sponsorship of a Syrian refugee family. You can target a donation to a specific program.
Public seminars, lectures, workshops and religious services are organized by the Council and financed by the member churches. These churches also contribute financially to the food programs.
WAICC is working with the local community to sponsor two Syrian refugee families in 2016. If you wish to donate to this project, please specify "Refugee Sponsorship" fund from the pull down in the donation form.
