This year has been like no other which has been incredibly challenging for our program participants, staff, and our Downtown Eastside Community at large. While we have received an amazing level of support from all over the Lower Mainland this year whether it was through monetary donations, an in-kind donation of personal protective equipment or prizes for our online gala auction, fundraising has been challenging.
As the year comes to a close, purchasing one or more of the following options will help us continue our crucial work next year. This is also a great opportunity to do some last minute holiday shopping for a gift that just keeps giving, or getting your final tax deductible donations in for the year!
High Visibility Safety Vests: $25 each
Safety gear is paramount to our MP associates and staff as they work hard cleaning neighbourhoods, and helping MP Maintenance clients throughout the Lower Mainland. Help keep them safe with a high-visibility safety vest, especially during the darker rainier months of the year! Click here to donate a vest.
MP Maintenance Basic Uniform Set for One New Associate: $85 each
Our MP uniforms are worn with pride. You can provide an associate with some key uniform components, which include: a toque, a cap, a cotton t-shirt, and sweatshirt, all branded with MP Maintenance to keep associates warm during the winter months. Click here to donate a uniform set.
MP Maintenance Rain Gear for One Associate: $120 each
Living in Vancouver, rain is expected all year round, but that doesn’t stop our MP associates and staff from going out and keeping our community safe, and clean! While we can’t completely protect them from the elements, you can help us keep them as dry as possible by donating a set of rain jackets and pants! Click here to donate rain gear.
3-Day Employment Readiness Workshop: $250 each
Cover the costs of one 3-day Employment Readiness Workshop at Mission Possible. Due to the pandemic, we're limited to holding workshops of up to six people, just a fraction of the size of our previous workshops. To keep up with the demand, we've quadrupled the number of workshops we hold each month, but the costs have stayed the same. Please help us continue to support individuals who are ready to take the next step in their journey to a sustainable life. Click here to donate a workshop.
