A great way to spend Mother’s Day and support your local charity
Looking for something to do with Mom on Mother’s Day? Look no further than the Delta Community Foundation’s spring warehouse sale. May 12-14 will offer a great weekend of shopping, with the added bonus of all proceeds going towards charities in Delta, through The Delta Community Foundation.
In partnership with Evolution Fulfillment, Apeship Courier & Freight, and the City of Delta, the past two warehouse sales were great successes, attracting over 400 shoppers from throughout the Lower mainland to The Harris Barn in Ladner. All funds raised will go towards the DCF’s Community Support Fund. This fund is used to support smaller charities in Delta and provides opportunities for the Delta Community Foundation to respond to urgent needs across our communities.
The Harris Barn in Ladner, provides an ideal venue for this sale. The location has ample free parking and a wide open space to accommodate many shoppers. Visitors can choose from racks of clothing, accessories, and household items that are marked up to 75% off retail prices. Past product highlights included the popular Chaser brand of t-shirts, Lack of Colour hats, Gentlefawn clothing, induction cooktops, and premium bedding.
“The Delta Community Foundation was overwhelmed with the support from the community in the Spring and Fall of 2022. Thanks to that support, sales generated over $90,000, which is being used to fund critical initiatives in Delta through the Delta Community Foundation’, said Foundation President, Gail Martin. She adds, “The successful sales can be attributed to the important partnerships with local businesses and the commitment of volunteers who generously donate their time and energy. Thank you to everyone who made, and continues to make, events like these possible”.
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!! If you are interested in volunteering at the warehouse sale, contact Julie Berks. We are in need of volunteers in all areas – set-up, greeting, tidying, replenishing inventory, payment processing, dismantling, and more.
Give from the Heart Gala
Delta Community Foundation Hosts a Successful Fundraising Gala.
DELTA, British Columbia – The Delta Community Foundation hosted a sold-out inaugural fundraising gala at the new Cascades Casino on February 11th 2023.
Thank you, Delta! The Give from the Heart Gala was an evening filled with great food, friends, entertainment, and the joining together of charities and grant recipients who have received funding from the Delta Community Foundation. While the results are still being tabulated, the event was a huge success! All funds raised will bring your community foundation closer to our goal of growing The Community Support Fund, creating resources for charities in Delta and an opportunity to respond to urgent needs across our communities.
Attendees enjoyed a casino-themed event that opened with a lively performance from two Vegas-style Showgirls, followed by heart-warming stories of community outreach and humanitarian efforts enabled by our generous supporters and donors, a delicious dinner, and an exciting silent and live auction event offering a diverse selection of generously donated art, local services, wine, and hospitality. Every ticket and winning bid will go directly to support the foundation and those most vulnerable in our beautiful neighbourhoods.
“The inaugural Gala of the Delta Community Foundation was a resounding success thanks to the hard work of the many volunteers, the sponsors who gave financial support and the people who attended. A huge thank you to all who helped make it an evening of fun, inspiration, celebration and hope for those in our community who need help to bridge societal gaps.”, said Delta Community Foundation President, Gail Martin.
For more than 35 years, the Delta Community Foundation has been the only charity that gives to all other charities in Delta, through administering community donations, the creation and administration of Endowments, as well as providing an opportunity for community involvement through addressing local needs with the Neighbourhood Small Grants Program. Since the launch of the Fund Building Campaign in 2022, the Foundation has raised over $700K through the generosity of the community.
Donors have made it possible for the Foundation to fund initiatives, charities and non-profit organizations operating in sectors such as mental health, education, arts, culture & heritage, children & youth, environment, food security, Indigenous initiatives, neighborhoods, seniors and much more.
Thank you to all our generous donors, esteemed guests, volunteers, gala organizing committee, and our amazing sponsors who helped make this magical evening a celebrated success! To support the Delta Community Foundation visit www.deltafoundation.org
