Ways to Give

Support our COVID Care Kit Initiative

Families we supported during the holiday season continue to be impacted by the pandemic.
We welcome you to once again show your support for those in need as they continue to navigate this difficult time.

Join us in this initiative to create caring connections between people throughout our community.
Ways to Support

While we anticipate brighter times ahead, these next few months are particularly challenging to our 2,500 isolated neighbours as they adjust to the changing landscape.  We need your support to help brighten their day and give them hope for the future. 

There are 4 ways that you can support the COVID Care Kits Initiative:

1. Donate a COVID Care Kit

Sign up to provide a COVID Care Kit to a North Shore neighbour in need.  All items can be purchased at your local grocery store.  

Kits should include:

  • Grocery gift card ($25 per person)
  • Personal care items including, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, sunscreen etc.
  • Fun activity to promote mental health – ie. Skipping rope, sidewalk chalk, colouring book etc.
  • A colourful, fun, and reusable bag to package the items in

Sign Up Now

Once you fill out your application, we will send out an information package that includes all the details on how to put together your COVID Care Kit.  Completed Kits can be dropped off to our Delbrook office (600 West Queens Rd, Old Delbrook Rec Centre, North Building, North Vancouver, BC V7N 2L3). More details will be included in your information package. 

2. Engage your Community and donate items towards COVID Care Kits

Recruit the help of your family, friends, colleagues, or community groups to help us fill our COVID Care Kits! We are collecting personal care and hygiene items, grocery gift cards, and activities for outdoor family fun. By engaging your community and organizing a drive or fundraiser, you can help support vulnerable families and seniors living on the North Shore!

3. Make a financial gift

Your financial gift will help the Family Services of the North Shore staff and volunteers create and deliver COVID Care Kits to our vulnerable neighbours. Your gift will guarantee that our team can provide grocery gift cards, personal care items, fun outdoor activities for families, and more!

Gifts over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.

4. Support our School Engagement Program

Become an ambassador for Family Services of the North Shore and help us connect with schools across the North Shore. The main goal of our school engagement program is to generate awareness in our community so we can help more people in need of support. We are asking ambassadors to help us connect with the school community to pass along information on how COVID Care Kits can help any family who might benefit from this giving program. Every request for assistance is treated with compassion, respect and complete confidentiality. Click here to learn more about the Caring Schools Initiative.
