Aunt Leah’s Christmas Tree Lots: Enter to win a Wreath

Comments 75 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Aunt Leah’s Christmas Tree Lots are now open in 5 locations around Metro Vancouver. What sets these lots apart is that they are a major annual fundraiser for Aunt Leah’s Place, with 100% of proceeds going towards housing for vulnerable youth leaving foster care, and young moms and their children.

About Aunt Leah’s

Every year in BC, over 700 youth will turn 19 and “age out” of government care, forcing an abrupt end to their social, emotional, and financial supports. Quickly, these youth must secure food, housing, employment, and develop the life-skills to keep it all together. It’s an exacting standard we ask of no other young adults in our society. As a result, nearly half of these youths will experience homelessness, less than a third will graduate from secondary school, and the majority will rely on income assistance.

Aunt Leah’s Place provides supportive housing for youth transitioning out of foster care and young mothers in need. Their programs target the entry and exit points of the foster care system, with a goal of providing stability, resources and opportunities similar to those provided by mainstream Canadian families.

    Love their trees. You can also buy branches from them if you can’t have a real tree but need that real tree scent! Last year the worker helping me was a former recipient of Aunt Leahs Place he shared his story with me about what they did for him and what a difference they made in his life. Everyone deserves kindness and a chance.
