39th Annual Burnaby Christmas Bureau
An application was received from Burnaby Community Services Society requesting a grant in support of their 39th Annual Burnaby Christmas Bureau from 2020 October 01 to 2020 December 23. The program brings Christmas to low-income residents by providing hampers to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and new toys and gifts to children up to 16 years old. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, rigorous in-person processes will be in place to protect the health and safety of staff, residents and volunteers. The grant will help offset increased costs associated with new protocols and anticipated greater need for the program, which require extended operation hours and more staff and volunteers. In 2019, the program helped over 3,500 residents.
CPA: 2019 - $5,000 / 2018 - $5,000 / 2017 - $5,000
