Christmas Labour Dinner Donations and Volunteer Sign Up

 In News

Dear Friends,

The BCFED needs your help. This has been another hard year for so many in our communities. We are looking for volunteers and for donations in order to make this year’s annual Labour Christmas Dinner a success.

Volunteer:

Volunteers are needed in Vancouver at the Maritime Labour Centre, 1880 Triumph Street on the following dates:

  • December 20 – unloading trucks with food and toys @ 9:00 am
  • December 21 – filling hampers, setting up the hall @ 9:00 am
  • December 22 – filling hampers, sorting toys @ 9:00 am
  • December 23 – volunteer at the Vancouver location starting at 3:00 pm

Donate:

Donations of the following items are needed:

  • unwrapped toys & teenager gifts
  • non-perishable foods
  • gift cards & passes

The 2021 Labour Christmas Dinner is being adapted in response to the pandemic and capacity constraints. Food hampers and toys will be offered, but there will not be any catered food, nor a clothing drive and the event will take place in Vancouver only. 

Please send your name and contact information to labourxmasdinner@hotmail.ca advising if you are available to volunteer on the above days in Vancouver or for information on how, when and where to donate gifts. 

Please note, the BCFED vaccination policy applies for all volunteers. You must show BC vaccine passport & ID at start of shift. Mask wearing is required throughout and social distancing maintained wherever possible.  Hand disinfectant will be provided.

With sincerest thanks for your generosity and solidarity to help us give back

In solidarity,
