Charity Lunch 2017
December 13, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm
Join us for our annual Charity Lunch — a time for fun, comradery & generosity. As is our tradition, we gather together every year at this time in a fundraising effort.
This year we are proudly raising funds for the WISH Drop-in Centre Society.
The mission of WISH is to improve the health, safety and well-being of women who are involved in Vancouver’s street-based sex trade. WISH puts its mission into action by operating an overnight drop-in centre in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, where women can meet their basic needs (food, clothing, nursing care, personal items), receive individualized support and participate in programs that engage their spirits, hearts and minds. These programs include: Aboriginal cultural programming, supported-employment programming, and mobile street outreach. WISH operates an on-site cling and learning centre, which is staffed with instructors from WISH and Capilano University. The WISH Drop-In Centre is a (self-identified) women-only space.*
