Many Vancouverites will have heard of the anonymous person who hides $100.00 envelopes around the Lower Mainland and tweets clues about it. You can follow them on Twitter, just search for @hiddenCashYVR. Our staff were so excited when they opened the mail and found the below letter and donation from @HiddenCashYVR. They explain in the letter that they want to show that giving is easy and even small amounts make a difference. Well @HiddenCashYVR you certainly made our day and made a difference in the lives of our youth.
Thank you @HiddenCashYVR!
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!
