Movie Night in MacLean Park

Approximately 130 kids and parents enjoyed the Kung Fu Panda movie. The NPO, Constable Janine Tanino and Strathcona CPC volunteers along with UGM volunteers did a clean up and the NPO and volunteers joined with kids for a soccer game. Constable Tanino opened up her police vehicle for children to explore.

Collingwood CPC volunteers provided the equipment and set up for the movie and even brought bags of popcorn for everyone. A big thank you to Partap and all the Collingwood volunteers for making it possible for families to have a fun, free movie night in the park. There was lots of laughter in the park over the on-screen antics of the Panda.

Reconciliation in Action at Strathcona Community Centre

During the Reconciliation in Action event, hosted at Strathcona Community Centre, volunteers from Strathcona CPC provided Child Find services to the attendees. In total, SCPC Volunteers help create “All About Me” Child ID Booklets for 33 children. Thanks to Child Find BC for their generous support, supplying all the materials needed to create a unique booklet for each child.

Union Gospel Summer Connect

Strathcona CPC had a booth at Summer Connect, hosted by UGM. The Neighbourhood Police Officer (NPO) Constable Janine Tanino and CPC volunteers answered queries from the public, listened to resident’s concerns and handed out stickers to kids. It was a great opportunity to meet area residents and connect with other service providers.

Thank you to the Union Gospel Mission for including the SCPC in their Summer Connect!

For the Strathcona CPC’s First Event, we partnered with the City of Vancouver’s KVS program to do a giant neighbourhood cleanup. Strathcona CPC volunteers were joined by Vancouver Police Cadets, Union Gospel Missions Alumni and Program Residents, Strathcona Community Centre’s Youth Basketball Program members and neighbourhood residents. A total of 75 people participated and collected 147 bags of trash. The event was wrapped up with a BBQ provided by the Strathcona CPC and KVS. Brian Wong from KVS BBQed 93 hot dogs. A big thanks to all the participants and Brian and the KVS team for all their support for the event.
