Today I was invited to the District of North Vancouver Fire & Rescue Services in Lynn Valley where I met Fire Chief Victor Penman, Deputy Fire Chief Brian Hutchinson and a number of firefighters from Fire Hall #1. I provided a brief history of how Sahar wanted to help the homeless, especially during the cold and wet winter months and how that idea has led to the creation of a “winter” package that we now provide to those who reside in the elements. Chief Penman complimented our efforts and advised that the DNVFRS would place a “winter” package on each fire apparatus and keep the remainder to replenish their stock.
Our sincerest thanks to Fire Chief Penman, Deputy Chief Hutchinson and all the District firefighters for sharing our vision and driving this initiative forward to benefit the homeless.
Sahar & Randy.
