Earlier this month, the Chard team came together for an evening of socializing and shopping at the Chard Warehouse Sale in support of a very worthy cause. All of the proceeds from the evening were donated to Covenant House Vancouver who provide support and assistance to unhoused youth in Vancouver.
Held at Chard’s head office on November 4, our Warehouse Sale provided staff with the opportunity to purchase over 300 items that were previously used for staging and decorating display suites at various projects. Whether a vase, throw pillow, wall hanging or coffee table book, everyone left with a treasure of their own! Staff enjoyed shopping and a few fun bidding wars on silent auction items.
We are proud to share that altogether we raised $2,049! What’s more exciting is that The Kronier Family, Scotiabank and an anonymous donor have agreed to triple match all donations (up to 200k) to Covenant House until December 31! Which means that with the funds raised by our team being matched, $6,147 will be going to help homeless youth. These funds will allow Covenant House to continue the amazing work they do – providing warm, nutritious food, a safe sanctuary space and offering medical attention and support to those who need it.
