Project Warmth

Project Warmth is once again brought back to life this year by the Interact Club! Partnering with Union Gospel Mission, we are running a school clothing and personal hygiene drive in hopes of making this winter a warmer one for all!

UGM is an urban relief organization based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. With eight locations throughout Metro Vancouver and the city of Mission, UGM is positioned to help those who need it most. The heart of the Mission is to demonstrate God’s transforming love, ease the burden of the most vulnerable, rebuild the lives of the broken and offer dignity to those who feel cast aside.

Dear McMath Interact Club members,

Project Warmth would not have been successful without your efforts and support! Every step you took to help with our project goes a long way and should be recognized. We appreciate all your kind hearts and dedication whether it be attending our group meetings, making posters, coming to school early to supervise the collection of donations, and of course, the labour work required to transport the incredible amount of donations! The results of 40+ boxes of clothing and toiletries were far beyond our expectations!

A special thank you to...

KATRINA TAN, CHRIS YAN, AND ALLAN GUAN for lending their helping hands (or should I say, cars) for Project Warmth as well as GABE RODER from the Vancouver Fire Department for transporting the truck full of donations to Union Gospel Mission.

It has been a crazy 3 weeks of planning and I am so proud to have witnessed our success throughout the project and especially our heart-warming display of teamwork on the last day of school before winter break! It sure feels nice to know that we were able to help make the cold holidays a little warmer for those less fortunate.

So again, thank you Ms. Jamal, Ms. Simonson, Vancouver Fire Department, and the team for your guys' support!

Warm regards,

Yanessa Lee and Nicole Lam
