Each year, the Pacific CoastCom team gathers to celebrate Christmas and the season of giving. Staff from all six locations, and their families, spend an evening together reviewing the year prior and planning for the year ahead. They make plenty of time for fun, including a reverse draw to raise funds for Covenant House Vancouver. This year, they have presented us with a donation of $9,000 to support youth in our Rights of Passage program who are working hard at brighter futures.
We are proud to partner with such a genuine group of people. In 16 consecutive years, Pacific CoastCom has contributed a grand total of $91,000 to help street-involved youth improve their lives. Their love is felt throughout the province and in our home. Thank you for being here for 1,500 youth each year.
On behalf of Pacific CoastCom and Covenant House Vancouver, we would also like to extend our warmest thanks to the partners/suppliers who generously donated to the event:
Thank you to everyone at Pacific CoastCom for your dedication, love and compassion. You are building lives and strengthening our communities.
Each month we share inspiring youth stories, Covenant House Vancouver news, upcoming events and more. Sign up for our free monthly e-newsletter today and always be up to date with CHV news.
Our youth cooking group is doing great and in November & December they made chicken alfredo linguine, gourmet cheese sandwiches, burgers and potato wedges/onion rings, wonton noodle soup, sugar cookies, and Omelets. A total of 33 youth attended the group including 18 new youth!
Here are some photos of the yummy food our young people made:
