I’m not going to lie. Working in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside is hard. That’s why Christmas is such a hopeful time for Mission Possible. Christmas reminds us that the greatest force of love came into the world in the form of a baby, born in a backwater town, into an impoverished refugee family who found a nesting place amongst barnyard animals, straw and manure.
Understand the power of this image amidst the dashed and dimmed hopes of those challenged by homelessness and poverty in our community.
You can help us actualize and continue this force of love with a Christmas gift that will help our Downtown Eastside friends.
On our website you will find a list of ways you can make a gift with tangible meaning that will directly help someone in need. Whether it’s food security, job training or a gift of care for a community member, your financial contribution will make a significant impact.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
Rev. Brian Postlewait Executive Director / CEO Mission Possible
