With the help of numerous volunteers, local businesses and dedicated members of Vancouver’s film industry, the Oppenheimer Park Christmas Dinner
has expanded from feeding 300
in 1988 to over 2,800
local residents in 2006.
Over the years truckloads of clothing, toiletries, warm blankets and winter gear have been distributed to those who may otherwise go without.
In addition, the Oppenheimer Park Christmas fund has raised thousands of dollars
in charitable donations for several downtown eastside organizations
including the Union Gospel Mission, Triage Emergency Services, Carnegie Centre and Powell Place Women’s Shelter.
will be served on Saturday, December 22nd
. For further information about the Oppenheimer Christmas Dinner and how to help out, click here
