Here’s more guest-blogging from Jason continuing his story from Monday!
December 11th 2009 our staff set off to give back to charities, offering Christmas cheer in the form of new warm jackets and fleeces for those in need in Vancouver.
Jason Smith, DDT Assistant Bin Manager, had the pleasure of driving Santa’s helpers’ Truman, a Donation Centre Staff Member, and Blaine, a DDA courier, to charities in Downtown Vancouver and the East side of city. Blaine and Truman were great representatives of DDA as they dropped off clothing for children, teens and adults.
Andrew from Covenant House was excited to be able to offer new warm clothing to the youth they care for. The staff from MSC 1092 was happy to receive youth and children jackets to help support battered women. The next stop was the Gathering Place where Truman and Blaine left behind 30 fleeces to help the homeless as they struggle through this winter. Other stops included: Gordon Neighborhood House, Union Gospel Mission and 1st United Church Mission
As the snow slowly fell on this day of giving I could see the pride that Blaine and Truman had in helping those in need on behalf of all of DDA.
Best wishes this holiday season from all at DDA.
– Jason, Truman, & Blaine
