Jackie and Bernadette saw the problems of the Downtown East Side chronically exacerbated by the impact of Covid 19. Both laid off at the beginning of the shutdown, they decided to use their time doing something to help their community. Jackie has worked and volunteered on the DTES for many years and knew that the Lookout Society was best placed to provide help.

Many people have been affected by COVID-19 but perhaps none more than the marginalized population living in Vancouver’s DTES. The Lookout Society is providing immediate help to help keep the most vulnerable members of our community safe and well through this crisis.

Please support our fundraiser that will provide food security, life-saving support and LONG TERM care and safety to the forgotten members of our society.

Thank you to community leaders like Beedie Construction and Electronic Arts who have already committed to donate $11,000 to Lookout to kickstart this campaign.
