158 Days running

The purpose of this grant request is to directly support students/ and families that are in need of food security and clothing necessities. 

We are looking at supporting the students through:

  • $2,000 in clothing support - that works out to about $100 per student. We know that some students will require more support and some less, however in consultation with most of the families many have expressed they are really struggling to provide for their children and families are really feeling stretched to the max as a result of the consequences of COVID-19. 
  • $2,000 for food security through gift cards or food hampers as needed throughout the year .


This project is one of many received by The Vancouver Sun Children's Fund for our 2020/21 Adopt-a-School campaign.

Since the day our first Adopt-a-School news story was published in the fall of 2011, generous Vancouver Sun readers have helped us raise more than $6 million to improve the lives of B.C.’s neediest school children.

The money you donate helps teachers and school staff who are dealing with children suffering from the effects of poverty and enables them to provide breakfast or lunch, food at weekends, other necessities (like warm clothing) and educational experiences. We are grateful for your support, and for the opportunity to make a difference.

(100 per cent of donated funds are used for grants.  Admin & expenses are either supported by the Vancouver Sun newspaper or paid out of interest on investments.)
