More info: On November 6th from 7:30AM – 10AM, Vancouver Firefighters will be selling umbrellas at all major intersections in the business district of downtown Vancouver (the main tent will be located at the corner of Granville & Georgia as well as at all corners of the Burrard / Granville / Waterfront / and City Centre train stations, plus Granville & Pender, Granville & Georgia, Burrard & Pender, and Burrard and Georgia).

This campaign will benefit VFCS’s Snack Program and Community First Foundation’s (CFF) Backpack Buddies program. VFCS believes that no child should go hungry at school. With this in mind, the VFCS is partnering with the Vancouver School Board to develop a school snack program. These snacks will go to those children who are not having their nutritional needs met at home or by other support services. The snacks are distributed confidentially through an accessible distribution system that allows the recipient to participate anonymously without the fear of embarrassment or being judged by peers.
