A few days ago, a student group from Sir Winston Churchill Secondary held a clothing drive at their school. The group, named “Stitch by Stitch,” is a very inspiring team of young people. They’re a non-profit organization all about raising awareness on the issue of homelessness in BC. Through their activities (things like sewing initiatives, shelter visits and, of course, clothing drives) they aim to make a difference by inspiring fellow youth to take action within their communities. They also help remove the barriers facing homeless youth.
Their efforts resulted in a total of 15 bags of clothing – all of which were generously donated to our Gifts-in-Kind program here at Covenant House Vancouver. We’re so thankful for this and know that the homeless and at-risk young people we serve will be able to put these clothes to good use.
As you know, gifts-in-kind donations play such a huge part in allowing us to provide support to young people. Gifts of food, clothing and other vital items keep our kids happy, healthy, and safe.
A deep and heartfelt “thank you” to Sir Winston Churchill School!
