Vancouver: Making a Difference in People’s Lives
On Saturday, April 30, more than 350 Starbucks partners and neighbors in Vancouver, British Columbia, worked hand-in-hand to revitalize the Strathcona Community Centre. It was a day of inspiration, action and celebration – all demonstrating the power of people coming together for good.
Volunteers renovated gardens, including the Centre’s “Sunshine Patch” – see the before and after photos! They also created an education area, painted a mural and built secure storage solutions.
The positive impact we made was not only visible in what was accomplished, but also in the energy and gratitude expressed by the community members.
The Strathcona Community Centre is located in one of Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhoods. It has been serving the community with recreational services for over 35 years, and it provides a variety of services for all ages: licensed childcare, preschool, children, youth, adult, fitness centre and seniors programs. They are also one of the few community centres that have a Breakfast and Food Security program for children.
Way to go Vancouver! Together, you made a difference!
