You can make a bequest in your will, directing a gift to The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund and you can specify particular areas or projects where you would like to see it directed. Contact our fund administrator Michelle Roebuck for more information on including The Children’s Fund and Adopt-a-School in your estate planning. Contact her at adoptaschool@vancouversun.com or by phone at 604-605-2264. (Please note Michelle only works part-time but checks voicemail and will return messages.)

Can I donate food, clothing or other items that might be needed?
We don’t collect food, coats or other items since we are not setup to deliver items to the schools.  If you have food or new items, we’d suggest you contact your local school directly.  (For the most part, schools are not able to wash and sort used items for distribution.)
