Thanks to all of you good souls for your generous food donations! As promised, on Friday Dec 11, we made a big delivery to the Covenant House downtown. Pretty much all our employees chipped in, as well as many of our business partners and friends. It was wonderful to see a few bags of food turn into big piles. The BC Covenant House provides assistance to underprivileged BC youth. To learn more about their cause or to make your own donation click here.
This is the second time we have done free work for Variety The Childrens Chairty. We always welcome requests to help out local charitable organizations. Dulux was also kind enough to provide the paint for this job free of charge.
