Each holiday season, we provide all of our young people with a Christmas backpack filled with new clothing, toiletries and small gifts. We hope that you will consider supporting our backpack program this Christmas and make the holidays special for our Covenant House youth.
Ways to donate to the Christmas Backpack Program:
1. Contribute to our costs
It costs us $100 to fill a backpack with gifts! Donate this amount to our campaign and help us purchase one whole backpack for a youth in need!
2. Purchase a completed backpack
Order a completed backpack online through our partnership with Army and Navy and have them ship it directly to us!
3. Include us in your holiday shopping
Click here for our complete list of backpack items! Take it with you on your holiday shopping trip and then drop off items at 575 Drake Street. Please call Amy to arrange a time for drop off at 604-639-8937.
4. Donate any new items from our list
Any new items are welcome and very helpful. Pick one or more items from our list and bring them to 575 Drake Street. Our holiday helpers will be building backpacks from the donated items. Every bit helps and is truly appreciated!
Our top new items we are always in need of are:
We would greatly appreciate all backpack donations being delivered to Covenant House Vancouver (Drake St. Location) on or before December 11th, 2015 as we have our youth Christmas party in mid-December and many backpacks are handed out at this time.
We can only accept new, unopened items for the backpacks.
Please do not wrap items or pack the backpacks yourselves. Pack like items together to make it easier on our sorting team!
Please be sure to let us know you plan to support our campaign and when you will be dropping off or having your items delivered.
