The Surrey School District’s Safe Schools department currently has over 80 students on their case load who are highly vulnerable and at-risk for a multitude of reasons. Since its inception in December of 1998, Safe Schools has been a provincial, national and international leader in the development and implementation of many unique, evidence-based, highly successful and comprehensive prevention and intervention programs aimed at enhancing student and staff safety. One such program is the Wraparound Program (WRAP) developed in partnership with the RCMP and the City of Surrey. The program’s objective is to positively attach highly at risk youth to school, their community and the home by building a trusting and positive relationship.

Students connected to WRAP often face a multitude of challenges at home, at school and in the community. This Emergency Fund will allow us to continue supporting WRAP students who are lacking in warm clothes, food for the weekend and holidays, extracurricular fees, money to pay utility bills, money for supplies and equipment.

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.)
