This food drive is unique. Spearheaded by LandlordBC, Spring Hope 2014 is an opportunity for landlords and residents to work together to help feed those in need. Food Bank supplies are critically low at this time of year—help us support those families that have come across hard times by donating canned goods, non-perishable food items and packaged foods to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.
Why is Hollyburn participating?
The Spring Hope event originated in Toronto 12 years ago and has since grown to become the largest door-to-door food drive in the country. It also represents the only one of its kind to specifically call apartment dwellers to action. Initiatives such as Spring Hope allow us all to actively support and positively impact the communities in which we live.
Date: Wednesday & Thursday, March 19th & 20th, 2014
Time: Between 6-9pm
Where: At your Hollyburn building
How: UBC student volunteers and your Resident Manager will be canvassing door-to-door
