Britannia Elementary: Basic Needs

Britannia Elementary: Basic Needs

Britannia Elementary School has asked The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund Adopt-a-School program for a $20,000 grant to provide basic needs — such as food, clothing and gift cards — for 120 students and their families.

School staff collaboratively discuss the family needs of individual students based on a wide range of vulnerabilities, which can include poverty, social and economic isolation, illness and the loss of jobs/income.

The $20,000 grant that has been requested will help stock a school pantry, provide gift cards for vulnerable families, and essentials such as clothing and supplies throughout the school year.
