Thelma Wynne Project

Help us fill the playpen. 

This Diocesan project has been collecting and distributing baby layettes since the 1940’s. Items most needed include sleepers, sox, onesie vests and hats. Blankets, knitted sweaters or hoodies, and other baby clothing are also welcome.  Items can be dropped off any Tuesday morning during January and February. Let’s see if we can fill the playpen!

Other Ways to Support SMMCM

With the daily drop-in closed, the ministry is now providing bag lunches for 150 people per day! Need for food hampers and Emergency Food packages has also increased significantly. You can help ensure that West End families can continue to access these important food supports by providing food or financial assistance:


Financial support

St. Matthew’s Maryland’s most pressing need is for Financial Donations to buy the supplies to make lunches. Donations can be made at their CanadaHelps page. When you make a donation please indicate in the message box that it is for St. Matthew’s Maryland Community Ministry.
