This Christmas over 275 homeless youth ages 16-24 received backpacks full of gifts thanks to caring supporters, donors and volunteers.
We want to extend a BIG thank you to this year’s major contributors:
Alfred Horie Construction, Community Savings Credit Union, Scotiabank, Yaletown Laser and Cosmetic Dentistry, Greymont, Catlin Canada, Harris and Company, Urban Barn on Granville, Metal Supermarkets Niagara, B2Gold, Safeway on Davie, Angels in the Night, Helping Hands Children’s Centre, Hollyburn, Steve Serbic, Harbour Air Seaplanes, BC Dental, Best Buy on Cambie, Savoury Chef, and Mosaic.
We also want to thank the hundreds of other donors who took the time to go out and purchase items for our youth. We also want to send another thank you to all the volunteers that help us sort, pack and decorate the backpacks. Thank you all for your time and consideration it has gone a long way towards adding light and warmth to our young people’s Christmas season.
From all of us at Covenant House Vancouver we wish you a Happy New Year. We hope that your 2014 is filled with love, joy and peace. Thank you for being there for CHV and our young people each and every day!
Our office will be closed on January 1st 2014 we will reopen on January 2, 2014.
*If you still wish to make a donation you can do so online here until 11:59pm for the 2013 tax year.*
*Credit card donations received after December 31st will have to be processed as January 2014; CRA guidelines require the gift date for credit cards to be in the same year in which the donations were processed. We will be accepting new credit card donations by phone or through mail up until 2 p.m. on December 31st. This is to allow us enough time to process all outstanding December credit card donations by the end of our work day. We will do our best, but cannot guarantee we will be able to process any new credit card donations coming in after 2 p.m., except those made online.*
If you are a youth in need of help our Crisis Shelter is open 24/7 and the toll free number is 1-877-685-7474.
