Happy Holiday's from all of us at The Travel Group

At The Travel Group we like to support local charities, and with majority of our employee's growing up in the Vancouver area we feel it is important to help those in our neighbourhood.
Every agent can choose any of the charities in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside, there are many to pick from, but this year we all seemed to concentrated on 3. For each chocolate that we hand out this year a $1 is going to donated to their charity of choice.
Covenant House provides essential services for homeless and runaway youth aged 16-24.
Potluck Cafe Society provides training and employment to residents of the Downtown Eastside with multiple barriers to employment. They also serve nearly 30,000 nutritious meals every year to community residents.
WISH, Operated by women for the exclusive use of female sex trade workers. A registered non-profit society that furnishes a variety of services within a nurturing and non-judgmental environment. WISH offers on-site showering facilities, dispensing of hygiene items & clothing, nursing care, and a detox centre among other things.
Throughout the year we are continually fundraising with our weekly "Friday wine down,"  "Jean's Day" and one of our biggest fundraisers is our annual event "The Longest Day of the Year."
