Help us raise $12,000 for our meal program at First United this holiday season!

Our holiday program continues to bring healthy and delicious meals while we celebrate the spirit of the season together. You can choose to sponsor a breakfast, a lunch, or both. Celebrate the spirit of the season, practice gratitude, and give back to your local community all at the same time. Our 12 Days of Christmas meal sponsorship campaign provides 12 days of seasonal breakfasts and lunches for our community members on the Downtown Eastside. $1000 provides breakfast and lunch for up to 200 people. You may also choose to sponsor only breakfast ($400) or only lunch ($600).

“Lotus Terminals has sponsored and volunteered at First United Church meals almost a dozen times. We have only ever received positive feedback from the over 50 staff and family members that have participated over the years. In addition to being a great team building exercise, we all feel as though our time and resources are really making a difference in the lives of people that need help. Donating time and resources to First United’s meal sponsorship program is one of the most tangible and fulfilling ways to give back to our community”
