The Vancouver International Airport (YVR) has been a generous supporter of Covenant House Vancouver and our young people. Recently their team volunteered with us in our Gifts-in-Kind area to help organize and sort donations of clothing and other items. YVR also donated $18,428 this spring, an incredible investment in the local community.
The impact of YVR’s donation will be felt across our Continuum of Care as it is:
- Enabling Outreach workers to find 15 vulnerable youth on the street, offer them food, and invite them to our programs
- Giving 14 youth access to the Drop-In Centre where they are receiving food, shower facilities, clothing, and support from youth workers
- Fully supporting one youth for 30 days in the residential Crisis Program
- Supporting all 25 youth in the Rights of Passage transitional housing program for one day
Big thanks to the Vancouver International Airport for the positive impact you are having in the lives of deserving youth. Thank you!!
