Community Ventures Society Christmas Campaign

Make a Difference in the Life of a Child this Christmas

Every year, the Children’s Services department at CVS works hard to create a memorable Christmas for the children & families we support in our Children’s Respite program. We are happy to announce that efforts have started to pull together resources for our 2022 Annual Christmas Campaign.

Christmas is a special time but it can also be a very hard time for many families. This holiday season, we hope you might consider donating to this important campaign to make this time of year a memorable one for the families in our program.

One of the easiest ways to send your donation to us is through our online donation form which can be easily accessed through our website. Simply click here and you will be able to make your donation to the 2022 Christmas Campaign.

If you would like to donate to the 2022 Christmas Campaign in person, you can drop off your donation at our administrative office at #307-2502 St Johns Street in Port Moody to the attention of Joanne Weidinger.

We want to thank you in advance for supporting this important campaign. In past years, your support has made such a difference in the life of the children in our program and their families.

You’ve put smiles on their faces and happiness in their hearts in the past – we are excited to do the same this year.

October is Community Inclusion Month!

Every October CVS welcomes another Community Inclusion Month! 2022 has been a great year as we emerge from the restraints of the pandemic and get back out into our community as we always have.

This year CVS will be focusing our efforts on communicating the importance of Integration in our community, instead of integration.

CVS will be doing a number of initiatives throughout Inclusion Month this year. You will notice our recent article in the Tri-City News about supporting people with developmental disabilities so they can live the life they choose, published online on their website here. Additionally, there will be some events in the community that we will be letting you know about in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you pass by our office early next week, you’ll see some signs to wish everyone in our community a Happy Inclusion Month!
