Volunteers Wanted for Dorothy Lam Build

Posted on: May 22nd, 2015 by Admin

It’s summer and it’s time to get your hands dirty!

Projects in Place (PIPS) and the Vancouver Society of Children’s Centres (VSOCC) are partnering again to upgrade a number of VSOCC’s children’s playgrounds to provide more natural environments; develop gardens for the children to grow food to be used in their daily meals; and implement a recycling and composting program.

Our next project build event will be held at Dorothy Lam Children’s Centre on the weekend of June 26/27/28, and you’re invited to help us build something special!! Dorothy Lam Children’s Centre is located next to the much loved David Lam Park and RoundHouse Community Centre, and helps make our downtown more family-friendly for its residents and provide much needed childcare services for workplace parents.
