We are very proud of Helping Hands, our employee-funded giving program. Through optional payroll deductions, the program has raised significant amounts of money for local and national charities. These include BC Children’s Hospital, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, CIBC Run for the Cure, and the BC Foundation for Prostate Disease.
Helping Hands also pays for special projects chosen by the program's executive committee. Past projects have included equipment for the Downtown Eastside Harbour Lights Kitchen, wheelchair lifts for Muscular Dystrophy Canada vans, and a thermocycler to amplify DNA for the VGH-UBC Hospital Foundation.
