Parkinson Society of British Columbia
This is a cause that hits close to home for me.
Celebrating 50 years of service! Established in 1969, Parkinson Society British Columbia is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Society is supported entirely by donations from individuals, members, corporations, foundations, and the dedicated efforts of volunteers.
We believe that every person touched by Parkinson’s deserves to know that they are not alone in their journey. We are here for you. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is committed to offering support, sharing reliable information, and raising funds for programs and research.Parkinson.bc
FUREVER FREED DOG RESCUE
We are fortunate to have rescued our dog, Kloppy from this great organization. The amount of work they all do is unbelievable and endless.
Furever Freed Dog Rescue is a non-profit rescue group of volunteers located in Langley, British Columbia. Formed in 2013 by Lisa Gaye, Furever Freed has saved the lives of over 3500 dogs, thanks to the effort and work of our dedicated volunteers, our amazing rescue partners in Mexico, Korea, and the US, and the escorts that assist in transporting the dogs. Furever Freed is also grateful for the love, support and compassion of families in British Columbia, who have chosen to adopt a rescue dog.
This place means a lot to me. I did my first two years of Pre-Commerce at Capilano College ending in 1995 before continuing on to the University of British Columbia to complete my degree.
Donations inspire, empower and engage. Each gift benefits the entire Capilano University community because positive change is a multiplier. Together, we create long-term growth. Successful students contribute richly to university life and create a vibrant campus atmosphere.Connect with Cap U
Seeing our kids go through the school system I feel this is a great cause to help reduce kids’ hunger in our school systems.
British Columbia has one of the highest child poverty rates in Canada with 20% of children living below the poverty line.
The ever increasing cost of rent, household expenses and childcare, has created an affordability crisis for families in our community. Basic needs like food, shelter and warmth are now in direct competition with one another. Families living in poverty are often forced to make brutal trade-offs like foregoing dinners for a week to pay the rent.
Over 163,000 children experience food insecurity. Food banks help, but many families still depend on school breakfast, lunch and snack programs to meet their children’s baseline nutritional needs. But, these programs only exist during the week.
Families in our community are struggling to keep food on the table over the weekend.Backpack Buddies
