The Grade 7 Puntledge EDAS Club gear up their school community for Season 16’s donation campaign. These powerful youth are leading 18 other school communities and their greater Comox Valley communities to hand out to 1180 people living on our streets this Christmas Season in Courtenay, Victoria and Easy Hastings, Vancouver.

As tradition, the EDAS Adult Team walks the streets to reach out to people in need and hand them these very special bags of student love. Care packages are also left on the streets to be found as this project began so very long ago.

The Puntledge EDAS Club shares their heart and reaches out to those in need at the Comox Valley Washington Inn. There were so many smiles that day from both, those receiving and those giving as we all walked away feeling a little more connected as a community. xo Madame Chantal

Handing out on East Hastings

The EDAS Island Team and Beyond hand out the student’s magical bags of love to those living in the back streets of East Hastings, Vancouver. Those homeless in these parts of Canada so desperately in need of love this Christmas season and beyond. May these care packages remind them that they matter and deserve to feel significant no matter their story.
