Have you heard of the Starfish Pack Program? If you haven't, listen up. There is a neat opportunity for you to give back to your neighbours and invest in building up our community.
Approximately 600 children in Chilliwack go to school hungry on Monday mornings. Currently most students in need are provided with breakfast, recess snacks and lunch each day at school. Unfortunately, the lack of access to food does not end when the weekend arrives, so the Starfish Backpack Program was created by the Abbotsford Rotary Club in response to that need.
Backpacks are sent home each Friday, full of food for children and their families for the weekend during the school year. The cost of filling each backpack is $525 per school year with 100% of the donations received going directly to the purchase of food for the backpacks.
This year Baker Newby LLP is matching dollar for dollar all local donations received up to a maximum of $80,000 received before the end of 2017. Donate today and help your local community in need. If you are looking for opportunity to volunteer with this program, please call our office today 604-792-4267. No child should go home hungry!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your past support of Chilliwack Community Services (CCS). Your generous contributions have made it possible to help many Chilliwack residents, in all different stages of life. This year we have named our campaign “I Care” in partnership with the Chilliwack Chiefs. We are reaching out to you to seek your support for our programs and services. CCS provides support to children, families, youth, seniors and immigrants in Chilliwack. Our goal this year is to raise $30,000.
We know that every year you consider carefully who you would like to support. We also know that it is very important that your support is going to programs that benefi t residents in our community, not to high administration fees. CCS allocates 92% of its resources to programs and services with only 8% going to administration costs. Your support makes it to those who need it.
Helping others is about real people making differences in the lives of those who truly need a helping hand. Danielle is a single Mom who participated in our Early Years, Better Beginnings Program. Danielle shared with us: “Chilliwack Community Services helped me in so many ways. I was unprepared for my daughter being born two months early. I was given 100% of the support I needed, from receiving clothes, diapers and a stroller to being provided the emotional support that my situation required. My baby and I are doing well with the ongoing support of Chilliwack Community Services.” We are so proud of Danielle and her accomplishments! We see so many success stories just like this every day.
