Big thanks to Urban Systems for supporting our Christmas Backpack Campaign!

Urban Systems is an engineering company located in Yaletown, they put on a staff event where staff members raced to put together backpacks for our Christmas Backpack Campaign. This was a fun team building activity that had the greater goal of giving back to the community.

The team building exercise was a success for the company and our young people!  During a timed relay event staff had to complete a task, such as hopping around a table on one leg, in order to receive an item for their backpack. There were lots of laughs and staff members were happy to know that the event contributed to help homeless youth and Covenant House Vancouver. 

Thanks Urban Systems for providing 40 Christmas Backpacks for our youth!

Thanking Cabela’s for providing Sleeping Bags for Sleep Out: Executive Edition

In order to ensure that all of the funds raised from Sleep Out: Executive Edition go directly to supporting our programs here at Covenant House Vancouver, we sought support from businesses in our community. Cabela’s stepped up and donated 25 sleeping bags for the event and we can’t thank them enough.

These sleeping bags will be used by our Sleep Out: Executive Edition participants then cleaned and distributed to youth in need.

Thank you Cabela’s for making the winters warmer for youth in need!
