Strathcona CPC Volunteers help deliver food for families and seniors in the neighbourhood

Strathcona CPC volunteers partnered with the Lotus Light Charity Society to package and deliver grocery hampers for Strathcona families and seniors in need.

On May 14 and May 28th, Strathcona CPC volunteers, led by Volunteer Coordinator Brian Kim, partnered with the Lotus Light Charity Society to package grocery hampers that were loaded with yummy fruits and vegetables. The food was graciously donated by the businesses on “Produce Row”.

Executive Director of the Community Policing Centre Dan Turvill said: “We were so happy when Lotus Light called us. Our volunteers have been itching to get back out into the community to help those that they see in need right now, and Lotus Light helped facilitate that chance.”

With COVID-19 restrictions putting a halt to many volunteer activities since Mid-March, it has been hard knowing that there are so many who need our help.”

The VPD’s neighbourhood police officers even stopped by to lend a helping hand.

This event is one of the ways in which the SCPC is “getting back to business”, with volunteers starting community clean ups a couple weeks ago. For information on how to volunteer with the SCPC, or to partner with us for an event please contact Dan Turvill at (danturvill@strathconacpc.ca).
