Vancouver Homeless Seek Shelter in Freezing Cold

Vancouver was hit with extended freezing temperatures this past weekend and the homeless community was hit hardest as shelters scrambled to accomodate the increased demand for space. I dropped by the First United Church shelter and found out how they are dealing with the cold.

Feeding the Homeless at Christmas
Bringing the message of Hope And Recovery to the Downtown Eastside. The success of the last 4 years of outreach involved over 60 people getting together with minimal financial and material support. We were still able to feed and meet the needs of over 600 people each year. The majority of the people involved with helping this cause had a history of substance abuse and a high percentage of those people came from the downtown eastside and are now free from their addictions and are productive members of society today. It is both a privilege and an honour for me and the people involved being able to give back to those in need during such a dark and lonely time.
This years event will be held on Monday December 20, 2010 at 6pm in Pigeon Park
