Centerplate team at BC Place continues to help neighbours
March 18th, 2021
The Centerplate team at BC Place continues to help support our neighbours on the Downtown Eastside with regular donations to The Salvation Army Vancouver Harbour Light. Today, our team was able to arrange a donation of nearly 500 pounds of food, including items such as chili, hot dogs and meat pies.
Since the postponement of major events at the stadium in March 2020, BC Place and Centerplate have donated over 15,500 pounds of food to charitable organizations.
Once again, we want to thank our team for their continued commitment to supporting our most vulnerable communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic!
For 65 years, Harbour Light has been a place of miracles and new beginnings in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.
Harbour Light is a team of nearly 200 hard-working, fun-loving professionals who feel called to work in and for the Downtown Eastside community. Together, the team bring a wide range of personal and professional experiences to work, united by the belief in the missions of Harbour Light and The Salvation Army.
From the front lines to leadership, approximately 35% of Harbour Light employees are alumni of the programs. Their lived experiences are integral to Harbour Light's ability to walk alongside our clients in their journeys to housing and recovery.
