Sending a big thank you to all our Community & Corporate Volunteer Groups who have helped us over the past year. We appreciated all your time and effort. Your dedication has made a big impact in the lives of our youth and for that we are extremely grateful. Volunteer groups help us get through mountains of GIK, clean up our space, thank thousands of supporters and help us give our young people a Christmas they deserve.
Speaking of Christmas we had another amazing backpack season! We had 352 volunteers both groups and individuals support our Christmas Backpack Program. Volunteers helped us sort and organize thousands of items for over 300 backpacks and advent calendar. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make Christmas a little bit brighter for youth in need.
Also our Corporate and Community Volunteer Groups have been an amazing support for our Whitecaps FC 50/50 program that started this year. Thank you all so much for embracing this amazing new opportunity and we hope to have your support when the soccer season resumes.
Because of you…
Someone will have enough to eat tonight.
Someone will have decent clothes to wear.
Someone will have shelter.
Someone will receive medical care.
Someone will learn the skills they need to survive and succeed.
Someone knows there’s at least one person in this world who cares.
This world is a better place because you volunteered, and we thank you for it.
