Support our Community Care Kit Initiative
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.
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 Community Care Kits Initiative:
1. Donate a Community Care Kit
Sign up to create a Community Care Kit for 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
Once you fill out your application, we will send out an information package that includes all the details on how to put together your Community 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) June 2nd, 9th, and 10th between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm. These times have been scheduled out of caution to ensure that numbers remain low. If these hours do not work for you, please call our team at 604-984-9627 or email us at email@example.com and we can arrange an alternate time. More details will be included in your information package.
2. Engage your Community and donate items towards Community Care Kits
Recruit the help of your family, friends, colleagues, or community groups to help us fill our Community 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 Community 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 Community 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.
