Help us say thank you through our Thank-a-Thon Program

Thank-a-Thons are fun-filled evenings where volunteers get together and call our donors just to say “thank-you”. Because we are primarily privately funded, it is important for us to be able to reach our donors and thank them personally for the difference they make in our young peoples’ lives.

This fall volunteers will meet at Covenant House two evenings a week from 5:00pm-7:30pm. You can sign up to volunteer for one Thank-a-Thon or as many as you like!

Thank-a-Thons are ideal for families, school, church and corporate groups who would like to volunteer together. If you would like to volunteer or learn more please call Amanda Merler at 604-639-8920 or email

Thank you image

Cheers to the employees at Cowell Auto Group

Wednesday October 5th was a great day for Covenant House Vancouver because we had the hard working and dedicated folks at Cowell Auto Group come in and volunteer with us. This team of employees spent 4 hours helping with sorting in our Gift-in-Kind department and helped us make some amazing thank-a-Thon calls to our donors.

Thanks again to your dedicated staff team Cowell!
