Strathcona CPC volunteers joined UGM volunteers to help out wherever they were needed; serving water along the line to keep people hydrated, doing cleanup of the park and help serving meals to families
The UGM served 3,490 meals to the public and 125 volunteers participated in the event.
Children from Strathcona Community Centre’s day camps along with neighbourhood residents and their families were at MacLean Park for the festivities. Jenny Kwan, MP, Vancouver East, provided lunch for everyone.
Strathcona CPC volunteers helped set up and serve over 200 meals to children and residents. SCPC volunteers also had a mini POPAT (Police Officers Physical Aptitude Test) set up for kids to challenge themselves and to promote physical fitness.
Approximately 130 kids and parents enjoyed the Kung Fu Panda movie. The NPO, Constable Janine Tanino and Strathcona CPC volunteers along with UGM volunteers did a clean up and the NPO and volunteers joined with kids for a soccer game. Constable Tanino opened up her police vehicle for children to explore.
Collingwood CPC volunteers provided the equipment and set up for the movie and even brought bags of popcorn for everyone. A big thank you to Partap and all the Collingwood volunteers for making it possible for families to have a fun, free movie night in the park. There was lots of laughter in the park over the on-screen antics of the Panda.
During the Reconciliation in Action event, hosted at Strathcona Community Centre, volunteers from Strathcona CPC provided Child Find services to the attendees. In total, SCPC Volunteers help create “All About Me” Child ID Booklets for 33 children. Thanks to Child Find BC for their generous support, supplying all the materials needed to create a unique booklet for each child.
Strathcona CPC had a booth at Summer Connect, hosted by UGM. The Neighbourhood Police Officer (NPO) Constable Janine Tanino and CPC volunteers answered queries from the public, listened to resident’s concerns and handed out stickers to kids. It was a great opportunity to meet area residents and connect with other service providers.
Thank you to the Union Gospel Mission for including the SCPC in their Summer Connect!
