Startups Care is a grassroots volunteer organization. We are a collective of grateful people working in the Vancouver technology scene trying to give back to our community. Together we raise money for charity and are having fun doing it. In approximately 3 years the Startups Care initiative and its partners have raised $30,042 and approximately 10,000 pounds of food for people in need. To see how much fun we have had doing this check out our photo gallery.
We are encouraging companies to collect food and monetary donations in concert with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank from November 28th to December 12th, 2017. On the last day of this initiative a team of volunteers will be zipping around Vancouver in order to gather up all of the donations so that they can be counted together. Companies of all sizes are encouraged to participate – big and small, together we are strong!
All you need to do is register on this website (so we know where to pick up the food on December 12th) and encourage your office to donate. If you are unable to find cardboard boxes for food collection, just let us know and we will drop some off at a time that works for you.
