Vancouver's Pediatric and Family Wellness Chiropractor's Annual Backpack Drive for Love Has No Color
We've had it hard in BC because of COVID19, but the Fort Peck Indian Reservation has been devastated by the pandemic lockdown.
Pre-COVID19, they already had a 70% unemployment rate, high rates of addiction, and chronic health problems. The pandemic lockdowns meant an increase in abuse, violence, drug overdose, and loss of school lunches, positive environment, and hope.
We don't want the kids to think we've abandoned them. Please help us by donating to our annual backpack drive or by referring new patients to our office. Dr. Sabrina is kickstarting it with a personal donation of $2500 and will add another $50 per new patient who comes to the office between June 1st and July 31st.
In addition to the backpack drive, we are raising money towards Love Has No Color's larger project:
Love Has No Color Playgrounds and Park Beautification
We will be refurbishing two parks on the Fort Peck Native American Reservation in August. We will be collecting donations to purchase picnic tables, BBQ pits, fire pits, swing sets, jungle gyms, and garbage cans. The parks are currently in a sad state of disrepair. They are an overgrown mess with no equipment, very little grass, and garbage strewn everywhere. The beauty of this project is that the high school student council will be maintaining the parks year-round. Most families on the Reservation don’t have yards for their kids to play in and now, more than ever in these uncertain times, the children need social interaction with other children. This social interaction is essential for families living in third-world conditions. Won’t you help us? Our goal is to collect at least $50,000.
