CATCHING THEM BEFORE THEY FALL
For the past 20+ years, I have been committed to initiatives to support the most vulnerable in our community. I am continuing my support of Union Gospel Mission (UGM) as a donor, fundraiser and volunteer.
My primary focus is on kids, youth and families in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Construction recently broke ground on UGM’s new Women and Families Centre, which will allow them to expand their programs for kids and youth. I will match any donation made by my clients, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 per transaction. 100% of donations go to the Women and Families Centre at UGM. Income tax receipts are available for donations over $25.
Supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation
Established the “Home For Everyone” initiative, in which clients could choose from four local chaities dedicated to providing shelter for those in need. I matched their donations up to $1,000 per transaction.
