Please & Thank You
DeBeck Elementary School students (Mr. Kripp’s classroom):
THANK YOU for your generous weekly donation of fresh produce for our meal programs. Because of your ongoing support we are able to provide 6 nutritious meals each week to families who attend our programs. These meals include: two lunches and one dinner for refugee families, one dinner program for families living on a limited budget at Richmond Food Bank, one drop-in dinner program and one breakfast program for dad’s and their children. That’s a lot of happy tummies!
THANK YOU for your ongoing dedication to the families in Richmond through the production of beautiful hand-made quilts. The thought and care you put into each item truly shows. Many caregivers have been truly blessed by this token of love from the community. Your quilts make all the difference!
Please help us spread the word about Richmond Family Place. We challenge you to tell 3 families about Family Place - they can be friends, strangers or neighbours. Share your stories about Family Place on our Facebook page or on Twitter. We no longer want to be the best kept secret in Richmond!!
