First United

The cold snap that has much of the continent in its grip just now draws attention to the needs in homeless shelters everywhere.
At First United Church in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, the work of providing food and shelter is a year ‘round endeavor. Our Dakeryn families had opportunity over the weekend for sharing in First United’s special activities that aim to leave none out in the cold at Christmas. It was a festive atmosphere when everyone joined in Sunday to put together 25 Christmas food hampers, with the ringing of jingle bells and good cheer replacing the sound of phones that were not.
