This year's Special Project is in support of Compassion Resource Warehouse. Their mission is to gather and provide resources for international relief.
The team is dedicated to helping others by sharing our cast-off abundance and wealth with those not similarly blessed. The team gathers surplus items from our region and add them to new items crafted and donated by volunteers across Canada. All these goods, which may include quality medical equipment and supplies, clothing, linens, educational materials, tools, sewing machines, toys and bicycles, are carefully loaded into 40-foot containers and shipped. All items shipped are clean, appropriate and in good repair.
Items are transported in containers to schools, hospitals, orphanages, homes for the disabled, church groups and regions struck by natural disasters. Regions include organizations in Haiti, Laos, Ghana, Pakistan, Thailand and Libya
We are asking for some of the following items:
- paints and brushes
- construction paper
- art paper
- colored/drawing pencils
- skipping ropes
- hacky sacks
Drop your items off at the info desk or office from January 9-20 or bring your completed kit in a box or bag and drop it off at designated bins in the lobby at Missions Fest Vancouver 2020 January 31 and Feb 1.
