British Columbia Division


$1 x 72 Days


With a total of $22,953 raised so far and a goal of $72,000 – March 23rd, marked Passion Vancouver at Rogers Arena where youth aged 18 – 25 and their leaders were encouraged to attend and give support to ending human slavery.

The goal of $72,000 would provide 40 survivors of human trafficking with the essentials to build a new life at The Salvation Army’s Deborah’s Gate facility.  Once these young women have reached a place of healing and restoration through the love, care, and holistic programs offered at Deborah’s Gate, the team will provide each woman with the basic essentials to create a home, assist them in finding work, provide scholarships to University and ultimately, help them launch a new beginning.

Featured at the event were Louie Giglio, Chris Tomlin, Crowder and Kristian Stanfill.

Vancouver has been fortunate enough to host this event three times – one of the only cities who have been provided the honour to host on multiple occasions.

This truly marked a special night … one to demonstrate hope and inspiration for change + there is still time to give.

Thank you to Passion Vancouver who chose to highlight this project and all those who continue to give hope.

Helper’s work doesn’t go unnoticed


For the past 21 years Stephen Trickett has been delivering toys, food and other donations to families in need across the Lower Mainland.

While he sounds a lot like one of Santa’s helpers, he’s actually helping struggling families year-round as a driver for the Salvation Army in Vancouver — one of 27 community organizations that count on donations from The Province’s Empty Stocking Fund, which launched its 97th fundraising year last week.

Christmas is one of Trickett’s favourite times of the year, […]
