Colombie britannique : solidarité avec les plus vulnérables

[12/29/2020] Building solidarity with the most vulnerable members of the community in British Columbia

Through the VINCI Foundation for the Community, Eurovia BC (Eurovia’s subsidiary in the Canadian province of British Columbia) donated CA$15,000 to Backpack Buddies, an organisation that provides food at weekends to thousands of British Columbia’s most vulnerable children.

According to official statistics since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, food insecurity amongst families has risen by 74% across Canada due in large part to school closures.

Eurovia’s donation has helped to curb food shortage for one thousand children in BC’s Lower Mainland by providing them with 9,000 meals as well as fresh fruit and snacks.
