On October 20, 2018, 20 members attended the CPABC Vancouver Chapter’s community engagement event, organized in collaboration with Door is Open, to make lunches for the city’s hungry.
Door is Open is a non-profit organization that operates a drop in centre providing food, clothing, counselling and sheltering services in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The neighbourhood, just a few blocks from the CPABC office, is known for its diverse needs because it has the highest concentration of urban poor in Canada.
Volunteers from the chapter helped make a difference.
In a three hour period, volunteers sliced bread and tomatoes, created and wrapped over 300 healthy sandwiches for distribution by Door is Open.
We’re #CPAproud of members volunteering their Saturday afternoon to help the community. A big thank you to KPMG Vancouver for allowing the team to use their facilities and to Chapter organizers Stacey and Wendy.
The CPABC Vancouver Chapter organizes several community engagement events each year. The next event is on October 23 in collaboration with The Duke of Edinburgh International Awards BC and Yukon Division which supports youth leadership.
More community engagement events are planned and are announced in the chapter newsletter/blog.
You can make a difference – join us at the next event!
