When we think of homeless people and weather we generally worry about it being too cold not too hot but summer weather can have a negative impact on the homeless as well. People who are homeless often lack places to get fresh water and areas to stay cool. At Covenant House Vancouver we prepare for the heat and make sure our youth have proper supplies and safe spaces.
If you love to shop think about including items for our youth when you hit the mall. Download the care package inventory list with you on your summer shopping trips. Feel free to contribute any or all of the items on our list.
