Otherwise order on-line and pay for your groceries
HSS volunteers will pick up groceries and deliver outside your home.
This way seniors stay away from the volunteers delivering groceries.
BIG thank you to our young Volunteers, for offering this `Seva` to our seniors.
There is more demand for this service than the numbers of volunteers available therefore,
priority will be given to those who are in more need.
please call Leela 306-380-7737 for this service.

APPEAL TO DEVOTEES
I sincerely hope that, all of you have escaped the coronavirus infection,
and have remained in good health during this difficult time.
I would like to thank all of you who have offered their special prayers
for the well being of the community members.
As you all know that our temple has remained closed since last few weeks as per health advisory recommendation. We do not know as to how long this situation will continue. This situation creates real financial challenges for us to pay the monthly mortgage and expenses for the maintenance
of the temple and Gita Bhawan. I am writing you the financial status for your understanding, so you can appreciate the present financial situation.
(i) We have lost the income from regular weekly Arti funds
(Approximately $1000 a month)
(ii) We lost income from major functions like Ram Navami!
(iii) We lost the rental income from regular renters.
(Approximately $3000 a month)
(iv) This year the Annual banquet is cancelled
The Banquet raises significant amount of funds
(approximately $20,000 to $25,000) for the temple,
which takes care of yearly temple expenses
(Utilities, insurance, cleaning, etc.)
This has created a shortfall, which we must meet
to discharge our financial obligations.
Presently, the temple is getting income from two sources, which is not enough to run temple smoothly and also, pay the monthly mortgage.
(i) Monthly pre-authorized income $2000
(ii) The suite rent $1300
It is my humble appeal to all of you to come forward and make commitments to monthly donations big or small, within your capacity, so we can continue to provide the best service to the community as we have been.
Remember that, our scriptures tell us that,
Donations (Daan – दान ) for a noble cause brings purity to our wealth.
The pre-authorized form is attached
