Strathcona CPC presents “Warm Winter Wishes”

Over the past month, your Strathcona CPC has teamed up with the KOMCPC on a program we are calling Warm Winter Wishes.

The program purchased and put together winter safety packages featuring:

  • Gloves
  • Socks
  • Toque
  • Rain Poncho
  • Hygiene products
  • Christmas chocolates

On November 13th, 2020, these package (Over 350 of them!), were delivered to three different organizations in the downtown east side that service the most vulnerable our community. The WISH Drop In Centre, the Carnegie Outreach Centre and Al Mitchell Place at the Lookout. These organizations were then tasked with distributing them to their members and clients that would benefit from them the most.

Thank you to the Vancouver Police Foundation, and the 5 Produce Row companies (Fresh Point, Van-Whole Produce, The Produce Terminal, Fresh Direct and Discovery Organics) for you funding to help make this a reality! We can’t wait to see the colourful backpacks that we provided in the neighbourhood.

Finally, thank you to all of our amazing volunteers for their help. Without you this would not have been possible!
