2 days ago, Kate and I met down at RainCity's Housing to deliver all the wonderful socks to them amazing people at the shelter to be distributed to the homeless and anyone who needs them. While we did not get as many socks as last year, it was still 4 boxes full!
So here's the latest news. We will be delivering the socks to Raincity Housing & Support Society (Formerly Triage Emergency Services and Care Society) on the 20th of December, 2010 which is a week away from now!
So if you haven't yet had the chance to drop by Vancity's Head Office at Terminal Avenue and Main Street, now is the best chance to do it!
The first snow of 2010 came two days ago spreading across the Lower Mainland. Like many people, I was ecstatic to see the flurry whites. However, as happy as I can be, I am also reminded of many others who are currently homeless and houseless (as said by good o' George Carlin) who might have a lot more trouble this season if the predictions of a harsh winter come true - especially their feet.
On my way home from work, I often see a man with a drawing of a ship or an eagle on a piece of paper asking people to buy it for the price of a meal. I am usually rushing home to take my puppy out for a walk.
I recently moved into the Woodwards. I think they have done a great job integrating the buildings into the neighborhood. Now, it is up to the residents to make it a community and to integrate themselves into the area
Hello, Readers --If you are a Vancouver resident who chafes at the lack of affordable housing, you can imagine the hopelessness of my dtes neighbours as nearly half of the barely-affordable housing for low-income people has been wiped out in the past short while, in favour of development.
