The COVID-19 pandemic has hit working poor families the hardest – and the one in five children living in poverty in Vancouver need your help more than ever.
“Due to COVID, food insecurity has skyrocketed among our families.”Vancouver Secondary School Principal
“70% of our student population of 450 are vulnerable and living in poverty. Parents are not only facing barriers to food access but also layoffs due to COVID 19.”Vancouver Elementary School Principal
When the pandemic hit Vancouver in March of this year, the CLICK team acted quickly to fund grassroots programs that are feeding hungry kids and keeping them safe and cared for outside school.
CLICK has directed $72,000 to 35 different programs that are helping kids living in poverty in our city during the pandemic. This means that since CLICK launched in 2004, we have directed almost $900,000 to more than 500 programs.
Take a few minutes to see how CLICK is making a difference during the pandemic:

Two generous couples have heard the call to action to Help CLICK Help Kids during the pandemic – and they will match all donations made by December 31st up to $15,000!
We need to keep supporting the programs that rely on CLICK to feed kids and keep them safe – and give them hope that they can have a bright future.
