WE CARE 2019
We’re getting into the holiday spirit by giving back to the community at We Care. With a huge team turnout, we headed down to Frogs Hollow for our 13th year volunteering for We Care – an annual event put on by Contemporary Office Interiors with the support of a number interior design and architectural firms in Vancouver. Each firm comes up with a craft for 250+ kids to make unique gifts for loved ones.
We Care takes place at Frog’s Hollow Neighbourhood House, an organization dedicated to connecting community; from children to families to seniors; however, this event specifically focuses on brightening up children’s holiday season. The design community comes together and provides all the materials needed for over 200 children to create their own unique gifts for family and friends.
The children pour into the neighbourhood house at 3pm, and for two jam-packed hours, go from station to station making their creations with the assistance of the design volunteers. Our annual craft is reusable canvas tote bags that the kids can decorate with their own design by drawing with crayons on sandpaper and then ironing on the design. We had a continuous flow of kids eager as always to create their own bag and as always event was full of creativity, joy, and of course…crayons!
