The Donation Station Returns!
The donation station is back this week and will be back at the West End every third Saturday of the month. We will be collecting donations for the Dr. Peter Centre food and nutrition program. This program allows Vancouver’s most vulnerable citizens to receive healthy, wholesome meals to help with taking HIV medication and other treatments so they can better manage the illness and lead healthy lives.
The program provides a complete and nutrient-dense menu that includes balanced portions of meat or alternatives, vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and dairy products. Any donation you can make is greatly appreciated, please consider filling a brown bag with fresh fruit, vegetables, canned fish, nuts and eggs! Cash and market money are also accepted. Find the donation tent in the middle of the market.
