One of Methanex in Vancouver’s treasured holiday traditions is participating in the YWCA Presents of Peace hamper program. Presents of Peace is a wonderful program in Vancouver that allows those of us who are more fortunate to help out families and individuals who need it during the holidays.
YWCA shared this quote from a Presents of Peace recipient:
“As a single mom, Christmas is not typically a time I look forward to – mostly due to the financial burden it places on me and the fact that I am unable to provide the gifts my children ask for. How do you explain to a 5 year old that Santa can’t afford that hot new toy he sees on commercials?”
This year we put together hampers for 6 low income families, as well 3 STRIVE youth individuals. STRIVE is another YWCA program that helps kids that have aged out of foster care with their transition into adulthood. Watch the team have fun making the season a little brighter:
