South Granville Businesses Help Out
The South Granville businesses Diane’s Lingerie, Bau-Xi Gallery, JAK’s Beer Wine & Spirits and The Rise Eatery are taking action for ones in need during these unprecedented times. Here’s how you can support their compassionate acts of kindness:
Diane’s Lingerie | Greater Vancouver Food Bank Fundraiser
This local lingerie store wants to help out families in need through raising money for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. For each $1 donated, the food bank can provide $3 worth of nutritious and wholesome food.
Giving is easy:
- Visit the GVFB donation page on Diane’s Lingerie’s website
- Select the donation amount (every little bit helps!)
- Add to cart and checkout.
Bau-Xi Gallery | Art Cares Exhibition
May 14th – 31st, 11:59 PM EST.
‘Art Cares’ is a digital exhibition coordinated by the Bau-Xi Gallery. All paintings are artist donations and all proceeds are being donated toward Food Banks Canada to mitigate the communal effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to ART CARES, the Bau-Xi Gallery has partnered with Ted Fullerton to auction his suite of 30 drawings, inspired by a phoenix rising. Bidding will close May 22nd with all proceeds also going to Food Banks Canada.
JAK’s Beer Wine & Spirits | JAK’s Gives Back
On Saturday, May 30 ten percent of sales from all 13 JAK’s locations will be donated to food banks across BC. There is no catch — stock up on your favourite wine or summer beverages either in-store or online and make a difference doing it.
Since JAK’s team can’t physically raise a glass with guests this year due to social distancing, they’re also donating $1 from every bottle of JAK’s gratitude wine sold this month to local food banks. It’s their way of showing extra gratitude one bottle at a time.
The Rise Eatery/The Comfort Zone | Feeding Our Frontlines Partnership
The Rise Eatery and The Comfort Zone are proud partners of Feeding Our Frontlines. The organization lets you buy a meal for healthcare heroes at the nearest hospital or long-term care home. Easy click, easy help.
Urban Barn | Furniture Donations to Lions Gate Hospital
Urban Barn gifted a make-over of the staff lounges for the Respiratory Therapists and Operating Room staff at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, BC. The company donated $32,000 of furniture, including leather recliners and Canadian-made sofas, because now more than ever, healthcare workers deserve a comfortable space to feel right at home.
