In support of BWSS Battered Women’s Support Services Together We Can organized a RIDE preceding The Recovery Day Street Festival on September 10th at 6th and 6th in New Westminster. A great day of fellowship, food and unity! All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Beauty Night Society and Battered Women’s Support Services. Today the TWC Street Team went down to My Sister’s Closet to present the BWSS with the funds raised for their great cause.
Battered Women’s Support Services have been helping girls and women in distress find peace and stability for over 35 years. The wonderful people at BWSS provide a safe and supportive forum for women to heal and remove themselves from violent situations.
Over the past year, over 13,000 women have benefited from the services provided by BWSS. With a progressive social agenda in mind, BWSS strives to liberate women and girls who have fallen victim to neglect and abuse. http://www.bwss.org/
Giving Back Those in Need
The TWC Street Reach Project, led by Rodrigo Rementeria, have been visiting Greater Vancouver’s most impoverished areas with the goal of helping the less fortunate survive the winter months. This compassionate group of men have handed out sandwiches, socks and other necessities in an effort to provide some comfort and care during hard times.
Motivated by a need to “pay it forward” and “be of service”, volunteers are driven by their own personal experiences and the impact of the current fentanyl crisis in Greater Vancouver. Read More about TWC Street Reach Project
