KMITT is a knitting project that focuses on the production of hand made winter accessories such as gloves, toques, and scarves. This project provides an opportunity for people to give back to the community while raising awareness about poverty.
For each item we sell¸ another item is donated to one of our community members in need. All sales proceeds will go to support KMITT and the work at Sunrise Community Link Resource Centre.
Meet your neighbours¸ make new friends and learn new skills – all while giving back to the community.
Thursdays 6 pm – 8 pm at Sunrise.

Basic Needs Fund
The Basic Needs Fund (BNF) is designed to help people, who are normally able to pay their bills from month-to-month, move out of an unexpected crisis. If you have encountered an unforeseen expense, the BNF could help solve the current crisis and assist you to move forward.
In order to apply for the Basic Needs Fund you must be living within the Sunrise Community Link service area.
To discuss the application process for the basic needs fund, pop in and speak with an Advocate for more information.
