You Never Know
By Helen L. Marshall

You never know when someone

Of a mind that seals a light
The way you love, may not matter at all
But you never know it might.

A big thank you to all our community & corporate volunteer groups!

A big thank you to all our community & corporate volunteer groups!

Big “thank you” to all our community & corporate volunteer  groups who have helped us over the past year. We appreciated all your time and effort in support of the youth we serve. Your dedication has made a big impact in the lives of our youth and for that we are extremely grateful. Volunteer groups help us get through mountains of GIK, clean up our space, thank thousands of supporters and help us give our young people a Christmas they deserve.

It’s National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

It’s National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

April 23-29 is known as National Volunteer Appreciation Week and Covenant House Vancouver would like to send a big "Thank you" to all our Volunteers! This year’s theme is “Volunteering, Eh?” and this couldn’t be truer. Covenant House volunteers provide our youth and staff much needed support and we simply couldn’t provide the services we do without them.

Covenant House Vancouver Volunteers have:

We need volunteers for our Thank-a-Thon Program

We need volunteers for 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.

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!

Hip Hip Hooray for Hype Hair Studio

Hip Hip Hooray for Hype Hair Studio

On Friday October 14th, we had 7 amazing and generous hair stylists from Hype Hair Studio  come in and volunteer to provide free haircuts to our female clients. Not only did they give them amazing haircuts & styles but they put smiles on their faces too. The stylists also donated hair care products and clothing for our young ladies.

We are so extremely grateful for all your support last week Hype Hair volunteers. Thanks for providing our youth with this incredible opportunity!
