16 Nov DLC Group Goodness – Day Of Giving – Supporting our DTES
Day Of Giving: DLC Group Goodness
For the fourth year in a row, the DLC Group Goodness comprised of two Dominion Lending Centres offices have put on a ‘day of giving’ where they raise spirits of Vancouver’s homeless by distributing a healthy lunch, warm coats and blankets, and plenty of smiles.
The support for the day has grown exponentially each year with friends, family, colleagues and sponsors coming out to help, donate, and take part in the day.
This year, the group handed out 400 lunches, neatly packed in to brown bags decorated by local school children. This is often the favourite part of the lunch among the recipients, and we are always told that it quite literally ‘brightens’ the day with the children’s drawings.
With an estimated 1850+ homeless in Vancouver’s downtown east side, we feel that it is important to do our part in supporting this vulnerable part of our population. We wish we could do this every day of the year!
A big thank you to all of our friends, family, supporters and sponsors for making this day such a huge success for the third year in a row. We look forward to next year!
