Central City Cares

Look for the helpers!

Mister Rogers famously said, “Look for the helpers” and so we did. We celebrate three inspirational Surrey charities giving back in so many ways. Over the next three weeks, we will dedicate #GivingTuesdays to celebrate the helpers who so generously give back to our local community. For helping those in need during this pandemic and beyond, we celebrate The Surrey Food Bank, Surrey Hospitals Foundation and BC SPCA Surrey.

BC SPCA Surrey
Among these heroes are the team at BC SPCA Surrey who work tirelessly every day to protect and enhance the quality of life for all animals. Did you know the SPCA is the largest animal welfare organization in North America? We encourage everyone to learn more about how they support animals in need and consider making a charitable donation or volunteering through their website: BC SPCA Surrey.

Surrey Food Bank
At Central City, we are proud to be a part of the Surrey community who have shown solidarity and compassion in these difficult times. In particular, we applaud the Surrey Food Bank for their hard work and service to the community. The volunteers and staff at the Food Bank in Surrey provide meals and other essential items to at least 1 in 12 people experiencing food insecurity every day. To help support this incredible organization, please consider volunteering, donating items, or making a charitable donation online. For more information on high demand products or to make an online donation, please visit: Surrey Food Bank Donations.

Surrey Hospitals Foundation
Essential workers like healthcare professionals have worked incredibly hard every day to ensure the health and safety of our local community. Their efforts to combat the pandemic have helped keep Surrey safe. Central City acknowledges the hard work and dedication of all physicians, nurses, and essential staff in Surrey’s healthcare sector. In particular, we would like to thank the Surrey Hospitals Foundation for its help in providing support. This charity is the largest non-government funder of health care in Surrey promoting innovative medicine and exceptional care. To learn more about the amazing work they have done in our community and to support the COVID-19 response fund, children’s health, or their future initiatives, we encourage you to visit their website: Surrey Hospitals Foundation About/Donate.
