Thank you for supporting Crabtree Corner!
During Spring Break Play Times we challenged you to make donations to Crabtree Corner in lieu of payment and boy did you ever rise to the challenge! You used it as a great opportunity to do some spring cleaning and brought in children's books, toys, clothes and gear. Some of you even brought in new items and donated though you weren't coming in for Jump Play. This photo shows just a small portion of the donation.
Crabtree Corner was thrilled with the size of our donation (it literally filled Jen's minivan!). They told Jen that they use donations like this so low income families can “shop” for birthday gifts for their kids when they can't afford to buy them something new and they also help moms with with items such as clothes and shoes that they need for their kids.
So a huge thanks to everyone who participated! And mark Spring Break Jump Play as a great time to do your spring cleaning and donate gently used (or new!) items to a great organization. Next year we're going to try and fill a U-Haul.
And our next “by donation” Jump Play times are August 17th – 28th when we'll be accepting new or very gently used books, craft supplies, games, video games and toys for the ChildLife department at BC Children's Hospital. And over our Winter Camps we'll be supporting the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
