Last night I was invited to attend the ROP Community Dinner BBQ held on the rooftop of our Pender Street building. It was an amazing night and the community at ROP made a wonderful dinner including barbecued meats, salads, fresh fruit and a great mango cake to honor a youth’s birthday. Youth and staff worked together to make the food, decorate the tables and clean up. Great conversations were had and everything from cute celebrities, future career plans and even fundraising was talked about.
A big thank you to ROP for a wonderful evening!
On October 4th, Covenant House Vancouver is participating in the Ride for Refuge, a non-competitive bicycling fundraiser. Covenant House is one of over 180 participating charities focused on helping the displaced, vulnerable and exploited. The Vancouver ride is located in Richmond (no hills!), but there are a number of ride locations to choose from.
If you’d like to fundraise and ride for Covenant House (as a team captain or team member) please visit the Ride for Refuge website. Don’t forget to choose Covenant House Vancouver as your charity of choice when setting up your team! More information is also available in a brochure here.
