O’Connor Community Centre Blessing Box

O'Connor Township News / June 4, 2020

The "Blessing Box" is a community pantry operated by Giant Hearts. In tough times such as these, what better way to show your community that you care than by donating an item or two to the blessing box. The Blessing Box needs your donations more than ever now. The blessing box is being filled at least once a week, but could really use everyone’s help in keeping it stocked. If you are able to donate, please contact Shelley at 629-2851. It would really help our neighbours that are truly in need of getting food. We are looking for non-perishable foods to supply the box (canned veggies and fruit, peanut butter and cereals). Please take items if you are unable to get to the grocery store, but also try to give back when you’re able. We’re all in this situation together. Everyone is welcome to donate supplies and take items as needed. The Blessing Box can be found outside of the O’Connor Community Centre at 330 Highway 595.

THANK YOU! Thank you to the O'Connor Free Methodist Church for their generous donation towards the Blessing Box.  Their generous donation of funds will help to purchase supplies to support the residents of the O'Connor community.

PLEASE NOTE: As this is a community pantry, it is being used by many others. Please take full precautions as you would anywhere else. Wipe down and sanitize items as you take them. Sanitize your hands before and after using the box and wash them with soap and water as soon as possible.

Clean Water Waste Water Fund (CWWF)

O'Connor Township News / November 21, 2017

The Township of O’Connor was fortunate this year to receive funding from the Clean Water Wastewater Fund (CWWF), through both the   Federal and Provincial governments, to replace several road culverts throughout the Township.  This fund covers 50% of the total cost of the  project.

To cover the Township’s share of the project we will also be using funds from the Federal Gas Tax Fund (FGT) and the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) to change approximately 60 culverts in our road system.
