Why our Backpack Essentials Program is vital
There are hundreds of people living on the street this winter right here in our community. Unfortunately, we currently don't have space to house them all this winter. In light of that, we are holding a fundraising drive to raise money to distribute backpacks full of much-needed essential items to those living on the street. These backpacks will be given to everyone in our MAT's emergency shelter program, everyone currently in our Shelter programs, as well as throughout the community via our outreach program to those living on the streets and unable to find housing this winter.
Support those in need with one of the following items:
people passed through our shelter in 2019
people per month we transition to transition low-income housing and off the street
meals per month served to those in need in West Kelowna
number of full-time beds in our shelter
