year, the Chilliwack Connect Committee will host its annual
Chilliwack Connect event on Saturday, October 13, 2012, at First
Avenue Christian Assembly. Last year’s event was a great success
providing over 600 guests with food, clothing, haircuts, and most
importantly, community connections.
Connect is a community-based event. It is organized and hosted by
local service agencies, churches and volunteers. This event is not
funded by government. We are seeking community donations of supplies
and funds to cover the costs of food and minimal organizing expenses.
Last year some of our major supporters included, Hofstede’s Country
Barn, Sardis Bakery, Starbucks, Meadow Valley Meats, Johnston
Packers, Agropur Foods, the City of Chilliwack, the United Way of the
Fraser Valley, and many, many more.
service providers that day will include, but not be limited to, the
Ministry of Social Development, Fraser Health, the Salvation Army,
the Mennonite Central Committee, Chilliwack Community Services, Ann
Davis Transitional Society, Pacific Community Resources Society,
Street Hope, and many others.
year we hope to reach even more individuals and families within our
community. Our goal is to help people improve their quality of life,
and to link them to lasting service connections. We aim to reach this
goal by providing direct services on site, rather than offer
referrals or literature. This will include access to government
services, health care, outreach and advocacy services, employment
counselling and assistance, on-site child care, haircuts, foot care,
clothing, food and much more.
cannot run this event without your support. Your donations or
presence as a volunteer will send a positive message to the community
and to the hundreds of people who are homeless or in desperate need.
you for considering making a donation to our Chilliwack Connect
event. This event would not be a success without your support.
