We are very grateful for the special pandemic support from our sustained donors during 2020. In August, REACH received a letter from Port Gala Committee members DP World Vancouver, Global Container Terminals, Vancouver Fraser Port Authority and Western Stevedoring extending funds in light of COVID-19. The message that accompanied the gift is heartwarming:
“On behalf of the Port Fundraising Gala Committee, we would like to extend our most sincere thank you for your ongoing support to your community during this challenging time. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a global impact and we recognize that many non-profit organizations have been significantly affected by COVID-19.To support your organization during this challenging time, the Port Fundraising Gala Committee will be providing Reach Child and Youth Development Society with a one-time donation of $10,000. Funds will be distributed directly from the Port Gala Committee organizations. Thank you for your contribution towards the quality of life of residents living south of the Fraser River.”
REACH is one of the beneficiaries of the Port Fundraising Gala along with Harvest Project and Mission Possible non-profit organizations. This year, the gala did not take place for pandemic safety reasons and we are so appreciative of the Port Gala partners for supporting us regardless!
