Citrus Hair Salon Spring “Yard” Sale in Support of Covenant House

Citrus Hair Salon will be hosting a “yard” sale, where they  will be selling new and used items ranging from clothing, small appliances, home décor, jewelry, gift items, etc. The concept is to set up their salon similar to a high-quality consignment, vintage or second-hand store. They are asking for donations of gently-used items to be sold at the salon in a well-organized event open to the public, where 100% of the net proceeds will be donated to Covenant House Vancouver.  In the spirit of the old fashioned yard sales of times past, they will also  have various activities including a bake sale and lemonade stand, plus food and entertainment. After the event any items not sold will be donated as well.

They ask everyone to do their spring cleaning and drop off any items to the salon any time before May 31st. This is a great opportunity to get rid of those items that you don’t want to throw away but never use! If you have a store, you may have clearance stock you want to get rid of or any items collecting dust in your stock room.

An example of items you can donate (all items should be in good shape):

  • Good-quality, used clothing
  • Small appliances 
  • Art and wall decor
  • Home décor items
  • Handbags/wallets
  • Jewelry
  • Unused candles, soaps, etc.
  • Unused cosmetics
  • Accessories such as scarves, belts, etc.

These are just samples, but almost anything goes, just no large items. If you have any questions or comments, contact Citrus Hair Salon  at  events@citrushairsalon.com.

Anyone that would like to participte in and/or attend the event on June 12th is welcome .

Sending sincere thanks to the Building Owners and Managers Association of BC

Building Owners and Managers Association of BC (BOMA BC) have been proud to support at-risk and homeless youth on their journey towards independence since 2003. BOMA BC is the largest commercial real estate industry association in British Columbia. They are proud to host fundraising initiatives throughout the year, including their annual Golf Classic and Christmas Luncheon, to support charities close to their hearts. This spring, BOMA BC President of the Board of Directors, Robert Kavanagh, presented Covenant House Vancouver with an incredibly impactful donation of $10,000 to helps us serve 552 youth through Street Outreach and 1,035  youth in our Drop-In centre, give 460 youth a loving home in our Crisis Program and provide 42 youth with long-term supportive, transitional housing in our Rights of Passage program where they learn and practice new life skills.

Partial proceeds from this generous $10,000 donation were raised at the 2014 BOMA Golf Classic and Christmas Luncheon which means that members of the association and staff are a huge part of this wonderful gift to our young people.

Covenant House Vancouver would like to extend our most sincere thanks to BOMA BC members, staff and the organization itself for helping us save youth from a lifetime of homelessness and poverty.  Together, we are changing lives.

Thanking Southridge School Theater Students

The Southridge School graduating theater program students put on the play Twelve Angry Men earlier in the year and had decided to donate a portion of their proceeds to charity. The student’s picked Covenant House Vancouver because the play explores themes around vulnerability, racism, prejudice, poverty and second chances.

Our staff member Shahriar attended the year-end theater program showcase where he was presented with a $500.00 cheque that the student’s had raised from their presentation of Twelve Angry Men. The students not only supported Covenant House in a big way but they were also raising money for earthquake victims in Nepal at their year-end event.

Sending a big thank you to the Southridge School theater students!
