$5 Friday Fundraiser!
The West End-Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre is a not-for-profit. Like many other non-profits, our operations and our ability to raise funds for overhead costs have been affected by the pandemic. The City of Vancouver/Vancouver Police Department funding does not cover our entire budget, so each year we conduct multiple community-based fundraising events to cover the difference. We have not – and will not – be able to have any community events this year due to COVID-19. Additionally, we are unsure what the future of our Community Policing Centre will be now that the Mayor has announced there will be cuts to the VPD budget.
So we need your help. We need to get our office program reinstated and we want to conduct an open-air office in the community in some of the trouble areas, like Jim Deva Plaza. We can’t do these things without protection for our staff and volunteers. Our safety plan includes plexiglass shields in our office located at 1267 Davie Street, and a tent with barriers for the open-air office. To cover these new costs, and to help with some of our existing operating costs, we need to raise $5000 immediately.
So on Friday, June 5th, please donate to our $5 Friday Fundraising Campaign so we can raise $5000. Keep with the theme and donate an amount with a five (5) in it (e.g. $15, $25, $50, etc). We are a registered charity so any donation over $20 gets a tax receipt. To make a donation, please click here:
Thanks in advance for your support and we hope to see you again soon.
