The Southeast Burnaby community is culturally rich and diverse with more than 67 countries represented. Our goal is to provide funding to the six schools in that community for programs and activities for at-risk children and families, such as breakfast programs, after-school programs, summer camp, music, sports, and arts programs. Canada will be a better place when children and families who are underserved receive opportunities that are assumed by most Canadians.
The BASES team has been busy this summer! It received Charity Status and started to work on opening their Social Entrepreneur Branch. Thanks to many dedicated community minded folk….the Thrift Store is scheduled to open October 15, 2013. Read more about BASES Thrift Store here.
This thrift store will provide revenue for school programs as well as a wonderful place to gain work experience for many students and adults in our community.
