Resident Liz Dias had her students make Caramel Apples with "Welcome to Canada" notes for new Syrian Students fellow resident Dolly Mehra Soin works with. We had some leftover apples donated by School Restaurant & F45 from the Terry Fox Run and we put them good use!
2nd Annual Homeless Shelter Thanksgiving DInner. This year we fed and cooked 2 shelters: Stachan House & Eva's Phoenix. Over 30 neighbours combined to ensure our 2015 event is now officially a LVCARES Annual Tradition.
Fed all 82 residents at Strachan House a Pizza & pop dinner thanks to supporters of Karma Tickets. Panago Pizza made event possible with a much needed discount to ensure we could offer each resident and staff 2 slices each. Pizza delivered and served by Jason Killackey & Jagger Long.
