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.

Library Square Children’s Centre Outdoor Play Space

Friday May 23, 2014 / 1 – 5pm

Saturday May 24, 2014 and Saturday May 31, 2014 / 9:00am – 5:00pm

Please join Projects in Place and the Vancouver Society of Children’s Centres in their 2nd project together, this time to upgrade the Library Square Children’s Centre playground. Much like the Sapphire playground upgrades, we will be incorporating concepts of sustainability, food security and environmental conservation… but multiply the play and storytelling features by a factor of TEN.

I know Projects in Place has seemed a bit quieter this year, but that is because we have been putting so much work into a few exciting new developments.


Happy Holidays!
