The Vancouver Sun Children's Fund
The Vancouver Sun Children's Fund launched its first Adopt-a-School campaign in 2011. This was after discovering some inner-city schools were struggling against a tide of poverty and privation; a tide that was overwhelming teachers and principals.
Hungry children were arriving at school in worn-out clothing, listless from hunger or sleep deprivation. They often had no proper beds, or their bedding was infested with vermin. The children's lives were so blighted their teachers were at their wit's end.
Since 2011, The Vancouver Sun Children's Fund has directed more than $1 million to the Adopt-a-School program to help these kids. But the need continues.
All donations to the Adopt-a-School program will be distributed and will have an immediate positive impact. To direct your gift to a particular school, in the Memory of/In Honour of section of the donation form, enter the name of the school.
Thank you for your generosity, and for helping to make a difference in these children's lives.
