Thanksgiving hope for 1000 Toronto families

The Prayer Palace gives away 1000 turkeys

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, Lifestyle Editor, News Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2007) - The Prayer Palace, a multicultural, nondenominational church located in the heart of North York, is giving away turkeys and 5lb. bags of rice to approximately 1000 needy families.

For the past 7 years The Prayer Palace has been distributing food to over 1,150 families in the community and for over 3 years, the Pastors have served a Thanksgiving meal to seniors and those who are alone and without families.

"Both the physical needs and spiritual needs of an individual are important to us and this is just some of the ways that Prayer Palace addresses the physical needs of those in the community," says Pastor Tom Melnichuk, Associate Pastor. "This year, we wanted to do more to show how much we care about our great city."

Following the Sunday morning service, turkeys will be distributed in the Prayer Palace parking lot.

The Prayer Palace's vision is to make a positive impact upon the Greater Toronto Area, and ultimately this nation, by creating a city-wide family centre in which all are welcome - a place where all individuals and families can grow and flourish in faith and discover God's plan for their lives.

Known throughout Canada and the USA as a model for racial harmony and diversity, The Prayer Palace has become a congregation with members representing over 50 different nationalities worldwide.

Their work has not gone without notice. Mayor David Miller on the occasion of Pastor Paul Melnichuk's 70th birthday said "Together with Kathy, your sons…and the congregation of the Prayer Palace, you have helped make a difference in many lives and our City a better place." IN: RELIGION
