Fund-A-Need Packages

$750: Meal Sponsorship

$750 is the cost of a meal at the drop-in centre, where the kitchen serves hundreds of meals to women who come through the doors of the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre. Sponsoring a meal provides more than an essential human need: it’s contributing to a place of welcome and belonging, building trust and bridges for women to access further support. When asked about their favourite thing about the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, women are quick to respond: the food! Our meals are where it all starts: providing vital nourishment, and inviting women into their community. Every woman has a right to healthy, balanced meals in a safe place, served with attention and care.

$150: A Month of Support

This donation will provide 30 days of support to a woman in need. This cost includes a daily nutritious meal, access to DEWC facilities, and access to invaluable advocacy and outreach programming. A month can make a world of difference for a woman living in precarious conditions and unsure of when her next meal will be. A month of guaranteed meals means she can focus on attending to other needs. It ensures her basic needs are met, and that she has access to a continuum of support. It means she makes relationships with staff and other women, that she builds trust, and that she continues to grow familiar with the space. A month means others know her name, that she is known and recognized. A month can make all the difference.

$10: Toiletry Package

Provide a toiletry package for a woman in need. This package contains a travel-sized shampoo, soap/body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, and wipes to help keep women clean and safe during COVID-19.

$5: Evening Snack Pack for Women

During COVID-19, evening meal services in the neighbourhood are incredibly limited. Many women in the Downtown Eastside do not have access to any food or water after 4PM daily, when most services shut down for the day. This package will provide a woman with nutritious snacks and hydration. Each package includes: fresh fruit, a granola bar, a cup of noodles, yogurt or apple sauce, and juice.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation has focused its efforts on ensuring the hospital and its care providers have the resources and support they need.

The GlideScope plays a critical role in respiratory support. With a high-definition monitor, it provides improved visibility during interventions to facilitate resuscitation and life-support in emergency situations. This GlidesScope will allow our trauma and anesthesiology teams to safely intubate COVID-19 and Trauma patients and will be a vital piece of equipment at Royal Columbian Hospital for years to come.

Please help us raise funds to ensure this life-saving piece of equipment is available to all of our healthcare professionals who manage airway access in our sickest patients.

It is recommended that one opens the fresher styles of North American wines to experience the youthful exuberance of an inspiring wine that can then be followed by the classic structured styles they are being modelled after.

Expect ripe blackberries, cherries, current, cacao, and oak spices in your fresher styles, while finding more of an animalistic, leathery, meatiness, herbal character with your aged styles. Within whisky flavours that will differentiate will be spiciness, peat and minerality.

Ultra 23 – By John Ferrie

Through his art, Ferrie acts as an archivist and storyteller ads he seeks to find the architectural gems and vivid moments that define the city in his eyes. His canvases have the chromatic bravado of a fauvist scene coupled with a purposefully exaggerated style that is reminiscent of Keith Haring and David Hockney. Ferrie’s lines are curvy, kinetic, sinuous but never straight.  His candy-bright colours radiate an alluring sensuality.  Along with his dramatic landscapes, Ferrie has earned recognition for his ongoing series of vivid floral works-wild, undulating blooms that evidence his interest in classical French still life’s.  And his figurative pieces represent a queer parade of colourful characters and exaggerated personalities.

Untitled – by Nancy Hennessy

An idyllic setting of fishing boats near the shore, this view could be anywhere from British Columbia’s coast to the rocky inlets of Newfoundland.  The time of day? Either morning or early evening, before or after a hard day’s fisher-work.  It’s a strong piece of Canadiana, with it’s simplicity of shapes and use of bold color.  Rendered in acrylic on canvas, this work of art is 23 ¾” x 18”, painted by Nancy Hennessy, the late sister of Dr. Peter Jepson-Young, whose legacy lives on in Vancouver’s Dr. Peter Centre.

Nancy Hennessy was a founding Board member of the Dr. Peter Centre and its first Chair.  She passed away in February, 2019, living her life with dignity and courage – and exemplar of the values of the Centre Nancy helped create.

Her depiction of the beach scenes she loved is valued at “priceless”.
