Beach United Church, like many other organizations during the pandemic, has lost much of its income. Your donation will help us to continue to provide exciting online programs such as this one, giving the hard-hit performing artist industry a source of revenue, with any extra going towards maintaining our take-away meal programs for those in need. Please be generous.
