In support of Covenant House Vancouver & Youth Unlimited
A big part of our past 3 annual Client Appreciation Events has been coming alongside charitable organizations that focus on homeless and at-risk teens. Through awareness and fundraising activities, we’ve experienced the reality of long/cold nights on the street with various members of our team and even a couple of clients. This year at our 4th event we announced that we’re switching it up and will be entering a team of Scout Guides for a life changing experience in joining hundreds of other people together on the street for a night.
The Joseph Richard Group of restaurants (JRG) – a client of ours – will host their 2nd Annual Sleep Out on November 5, 2018, from 8:00pm to 7:00am. This is a chance for friends, families, and the local community to participate and raise money and awareness in support of two great charity organizations. It was important for us to have charities that represented both the Fraser Valley and Vancouver so we’re excited to be representing both Youth Unlimited in the Greater Fraser Valley and Covenant House in Vancouver.
