#GetKind in Vancouver

Vancon.womenscenterGuest post by Random Acts staffer Juliana:

#GetKind Vancouver! Random Acts and Creation Entertainment are teaming up to #GetKind on Saturday, August 23rd, 2014 at the “Salute to Supernatural” Vancouver Convention. Random Acts will be collecting items for the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (DEWC), a local Vancouver non-profit that provides basic needs and positive change for women and children of the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Help those in need by contributing to the donation collection drive. Anybody who contributes will be eligible to win a piece of Random Acts gear.

The DEWC’s wishlist can be found here: http://dewc.ca/donate.

SUNDAY EVENT (VOLUNTEER ACTIVITY)
On Sunday, August 24th, 2014, Random Acts is inviting three lucky participants to #GetKind with them. Chosen participants will have the opportunity to join Random Acts in volunteering at the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (DEWC), a local Vancouver non-profit that provides basic needs and positive change for women and children of the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Volunteers will help deliver the donations collected at Saturday’s donation drive to the DEWC. After helping the staff put away donations, volunteers will participate in the DEWC’s lunch service by serving plates, clearing and wiping down tables, and sweeping floors. We estimate that this activity will take place from approximately 10:30am to 2:15pm.
