North Vancouver Safe House Program: This is a reminder that the North Vancouver Region of Anglican and Lutheran Churches are still involved in the North Vancouver Safe House Program. Each church has been assigned certain items to bring to church and donate to the program. The North Vancouver Safe Houses are for homeless youth in our community and over the past two years we have donated literally thousands of dollars worth of items to this important program. These donations allow the Safe Houses to spend more of their resources on educational and vocational programming for homeless youth.
If you have any questions please contact Patrick at St John Church at 604-986-1151 or email him at [email protected] Thank you so much for your support.
Vacuum Needed – A sturdy Vacuum Cleaner in good working order is still needed for the church. If you have a vacuum you would like to donate, please contact Randy in the church office.
