Lower Mainland Initiative

Creating Care Packages for Women & Children in Need

Join our local project to provide care packages to women and children in the Lower Mainland. As part of the One Billion Rising campaign to end violence against women, and the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week initiative to work together for the common good of all, we can help these families on their journey through life's challenging times.

What We're Doing

As neighbours from many cultures and faiths, we're coming together to help women and children in our communities. In February 2019, we created care packages for almost 1,000 people. On February 5, 2020, at L.A. Matheson Secondary, we will provide life's necessities to over 1,250 people, including items such as:

  • Soap and body wash
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes (for adults and kids)
  • Deodorant
  • Diapers of all sizes
  • Baby food and formula

Who We're Helping

We are continuing our annual tradition of helping women and children in shelters and low-income housing throughout the Lower Mainland, such as:

  • Azure Place
  • Cynthia's Place - Elizabeth Fry Society
  • Elizabeth Gurney House
  • Fraserside Emergency Family Shelter
  • Kenkinow Native Housing Society
  • Monarch Place
  • Nova House
