We would like to thank everyone who helped our youth “Beat the Heat” this summer. We want to thank the donors and supporters who created care packages for our young people, donated items or gave to the campaign.
Cadillac Fairview is helping empower homeless young people to build brighter futures and offer them a clear path off the streets. They have generously given $50,000 towards our Community Support Services, which encompasses our Street Outreach and Drop-In Centre.
Our Street Outreach teams travel to areas in which homeless youth congregate such as the downtown eastside, Granville Street, and Commercial Drive; building relationships of trust and understanding by offering food, dry socks, minor medical care, and counsel.
BETA5 is a contemporary and innovative chocolate and pastry shop in Vancouver and they have been a wonderful supporter to Covenant House Vancouver.
Urban Barn recently redesigned our Male Crisis Program’s shared living space. We recently added more beds to our Male Crisis Program and the common area inside was close quarters for the youth. They provided us with brand new patio furniture to encourage the youth to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and extra space outside.
Nicole Sanche from The Juice Plus+ Company generously donated a Tower Garden for our rooftop garden at our Pender location. This will allow our youth to grow their own fresh, nutrient-rich food year round, without soil.
Thank you Nicole for providing our young people with this incredible Tower Garden!
CIBC Wood Gundy: Bentall Branch is filling tummies to fuel futures by funding the entire Breakfast Program for over 450 youth who will call Covenant House Vancouver home this year.
Recently two groups of volunteers came out from Raymond James to volunteer with us in our Gift-In-Kind department. The volunteer teams did an amazing job helping sort, organize and clean our incoming donations of food, clothing and household goods.
Thank you to our friends at the Ledcor Group of Companies for helping our youth achieve stable independence! Last year, Ledcor and its employees donated $65,482 to provide 10 full days of care to all 25 youth in the Rights of Passage transitional housing program.
