1. Accommodations

We praise God that we have successfully found a reasonably priced 3-bedroom home for the Onofriichuk Family to live in permanently. We are very grateful to Gladstone and Dawn Ross for having provided the family with temporary accommodations in their home.

2. Furniture & Gift Card Donations

We are currently looking for the following furniture donations:

  • A queen size bed and mattress

  • 3 single beds and mattresses OR 1 single bed and 1 bunk bed

  • Kitchen table with 6 chairs

  • Dressers and cabinets for the bedrooms

  • A single sofa chair

A family has already graciously offered a nice 3-seat sofa for the living room.

If you are able to provide any furniture donations, please email pictures of the pieces of furniture available, your phone number and the full address for pick-up to olivia@rosewoodchurch.ca. We will get in contact with you directly. All furniture pick-ups will take place on Thursday, December 1, 2022.


Donations of gift cards to grocery stores or restaurants are also welcome. If you would like to make a gift card donation, please bring them into the church on Sunday morning, or drop them off to our office administrator Olivia.

Our office can be reached at 416-298-9932 or by email at office@rosewoodchurch.ca. Our office Hours are Tuesday - Friday from 9 AM - 5 PM.

3. Financial Support

Until the family of five can support themselves, we as a church are responsible to pay their rent, pay for their groceries and basic necessities, clothing, prescription needs and transportation. We plan to cover these costs from our “SPONSORSHIP FUND.”


Thank you to those who have been giving each month to the Sponsorship Fund. The pledges vary from $5 to $500 per month. We invite others of you to also please start giving each month to our Sponsorship Fund and mark your donations “Sponsorship Fund.”


It is wonderful to know that you and I are helping at least one family from war ravaged Ukraine. Please know our government is not giving any money to our church for their support. We are grateful to our Canadian Government for assisting with the legal process of bringing the Onofriichuk Family to Canada and providing medical coverage through our government health plan.


If you would like to give a donation online to Rosewood Church's Sponsorship Fund, please visit https://www.rosewoodchurch.ca/donate for more information.

4. Prayer Needed

Please pray for the Onofriichuks as they adjust to life in Toronto; as decisions are made about their children’s schooling; as they further learn to speak and read English; as the parents look for employment; and as they try to heal emotionally from the horror of war.

Thank you for caring and for helping the Onofriichuk Family – Serhii (father), Olha (mother), and their children – Khrystyna, Kira, and Denys.


Dad - Serhii, Mom - Olha, Daughters - Khrystyna, Kira, Son - Denys

Thank you very much for your support of our new friends from the Ukraine.


Sincerely,


Pastor Nick Stavropoulos
