YVR’s fantastic finance team flew in to lend a hand

Recently Vancouver International Airport’s (YVR) finance team spent the morning volunteering with us in our Gift-in-Kind department. They were an amazing and enthusiastic group and we had a huge pile of donations that needed sorting an organizing. We hoped to get through about half of the donations but this incredible group helped us sort the whole pile.

We want to send a huge thank you to the YVR Finance Team for their amazing support and hard work!

Power To Be believes everyone belongs in nature and we couldn’t agree more.

Thank you Power To Be for helping homeless and at-risk youth access nature!
