Thank you Chief Jason de Roy and the fire fighters at No. 1 hall for everything your do for us at warming the homeless. Keeping our packages in your front end trucks makes our winter packages readily available to be given to those in need. Your continued support and assistance is indispensable!



❤️❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. Thank you to Chief de Roy and to all the City of North Vancouver Fire crews!

Managed to finally get 20 mens and 10 women’s packages into the hands of the Lookout Shelter staff. Thank you so much for everything you do. It was nice to see many people dropping off donations.

Merry Christmas everyone. ❤️Sahar & Randy

A helping hand indeed.

Many many thanks to Pat from Advantage Pest Control LTD for their generous donation. These donations are keeping the inventory in stock for warming the homeless which permits Sahar and I the honour of providing those less fortunate with our winter packages on their behalf.


Our perpetual thanks & appreciation for your kindness & generosity. ❤️Sahar & Randy

Feeling the Love & Support

There is nothing better than having the support of your workmates. You get a feeling of empowerment, confidence and reassurance that you’re on track. But when you are supported and also feel the love, caring, thoughtfulness of your workmates, that is another level of appreciation and validation.

Today was that day. I sat at my desk and one of the officers of North Vancouver RCMP detachment stopped by to present warming the homeless a collective donation from their team of officers in the Investigative Services Section.


The North Vancouver RCMP Detachment delved into the Christmas Spirit through the 12 days of Christmas. It was an exercise to team build within the detachment and each unit, team or section was encouraged to collectively chose either areal or symbolic gift, idea, gesture that they felt represents their unit and share it with the detachment.

What at honour for warmingthehomeless to be selected! What a gift! ISS as they are known, have provided funding for 22 winter care packages that will be in the hands of those less fortunate this year.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. – Thank you ISS.

City of North Vancouver Fire Department

Sahar and I met with Deputy Chief De Roy this morning to provide them with winter care packages. We were delighted to hear that one of the firefighters had handed out a package the other night to someone who came by the CNV Fire’s donation bin looking for a bit of warmth.


To see the expression on his face and listen to the excitement in his voice is clearly the joy of giving. Saha and I wish to thanks to North Vancouver City Fire Department Deputy Chief De Roy and his entire team for their continued support to warming the homeless and especially their service to the City of North Vancouver. #NVCFD.

District of North Vancouver Fire Department

Thank you Chief Hutchinson and to your team in the District of North Vancouver Fire Department for your continued service to our community. 


Sahar and I could not realize our hope of having these winter care packages reach those truly in need without Chief Hutchinson’s leadership and the assistance of his entire team. #DNVFRS

❤️❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.


As 2021 comes to a close Sahar and I would like to thank all of our supporters for the continued contributions that sustain our promise to the those less fortunate. Your endless faith in us to carry out this journey is what keeps going and keeps warming the hands and hearts of those in need.


Thank you!

December 23, 2021 – Tom H. are you Santa?


Warming the homeless obviously made the Nice list. We met with Tom so that he could deliver us a sack full of Christmas gifts. His donation will reach 75 people this winter! Christmas will be full of cheer for many this winter.

Endless thanks to Tom H. 
❤️❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy

December 15, 2021.

Sahar and I were extremely honoured to partake in your company’s Christmas Party. We know that you have been extremely busy this past few years and it our pleasure to see you again! Your annual contributions keeps us busy building winter care packages. This winter we will be able to provide care packages to 50 unattached residents thanks to your generosity. 

Duff R., thank you for your faith in us and trust with you contributions over the years!
Sahar & Randy

December 11, 2021.

When Christmas comes early it generally bares unexpected gifts. Today Sahar and I were advised by the Lynn Valley Legion’s donation committee that Warming the Homeless was selected as their 2201/2022 recipient.

We cannot express how surprised we are to be the recipients of the Lynn Valley Legion’s donation. Their kindness will be felt by 50 unattached residents this winter.

Sahar and I thank Lynn Vally Legion for their trust in warming the homeless.
❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. 

December 9, 2021.

One of the most energetic personalities we have ever met is Carol-Ann of Southside Community Church, Edmonds Town Centre Campus. Sahar learned of Carol-Ann through her new employment with the RCMP. She reached out to Carol-Ann and met up with her.

It was a morning of unloading containers, filling shopping bags with groceries and serving pancake breakfasts to those in need.



Burnaby Fire Dept is always out helping in various locations throughout Burnaby. Sahar and I were fortunate enough to work alongside Fire Captain Jeff Clark and took the opportunity to show him our winter care packages.


Sahar and I brought along a bundle of men and women care packages for Carola-Ann to distribute. She was quite excited to have them and stated, “we could have used them last night as we had about 20 people that could have used them.”

We encourage everyone to reach out to Carol-Ann to volunteer. Donate a few hours of your time for a great community experience. It makes all the difference in the world to those in need.

Thank you Carol-Ann
❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. 

December 5, 2021.

Shout out to our neighbours Pat and Joanne of APC Advantage Pest Control for your continued support to Warming the Homeless.


Your contribution will reach 25 individuals this wet and cold winter. We cannot accomplish our objectives of providing those less fortunate without your involvement and for that we are truly grateful.

❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. 

October 31, 2021.

Shout out to Paul G. who continually thinks of warming the homeless throughout the year and makes donation the monies raised through recycling. Sahar and I are grateful to you & your thoughtfulness as we are sure those that will receive the the winter care packages.

❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. 

March 3, 2021

Today was I had a wonderful surprise. A young Constable attended my office and dropped off a donation by Elly S. I had just spoke with her a few days ago. She contacted me in order to gather information about warming thehomeless. You see Elly works with BC211, which is a free and confidential information service that refers people to services in their area.


Thank you Elly for your donation. The cards have already found their way into  the men and women care packages.

I’m sorry I missed you today as I was extremely busy. Sahar and I are extremely grateful for helping us and providing this donation. Thank you for everything you do.

❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. 

A special shout out to my moto buddy Barton S. for his generous donation to Sahar and I thank you for your trust and faith in us with your hard earned money. We will ensure that packages are built and handed out to those less fortunate on your behalf.

I’ll see on the road.

February 8, 2021 – It’s all about timing!

Owens Hynes is the operations manager for North Vancouver’s Lookout Shelter. Today I met with Owen to drop off 25 men’s and women’s packages. Owen mentioned that this delivery could not have come at a better time. He was meeting with outreach workers at a homeless campsite. The temperature was dropping and it was getting colder with a forecast of snow.

Your assistance is reaching those in need through the efforts of Owen Hynes and the outreach workers.

January 17, 2021 – the “Crew”

I was introduced to this group many years ago by Sahar. It was a little intimidating as I knew I was being judged. The girls were close knit friends. Actually “sisters” as they called themselves. They have been quietly supporting our cause over the years as they know what warmingthehomeless means to us. They stopped by to say hello as we have not seen hem in sometime due to the pandemic. All of them work in the health care industry and they are my heroes!D195BBF0-A7BD-4E65-8C6A-32AF23B13A1F

the “Crew”

We wanted to thank them for their support as well as acknowledge their daily sacrifice in helping patients through a difficult and terrifying time with Covid.

You are our heroes! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Thank you for your service and support!
Love you all,

December 14, 2020 – Our extended family!

I had the pleasure of working alongside Shane PT for a number of years. He is a meticulous and impeccable professional. His wife Vania has the same traits and work ethics but has much more presence than Shane. They are to me family. I always describe family as someone you break bread with at the table in your home.

Sahar and I have had the good fortune of meeting Shane’s lovely mother, Mary and his father Julio. I must admit, Sahar and I absolutely love Mary and Julio.

So today at work, my office was graced with the presence of Shane sporting his uniform and that mischievous smile that says, I know something.

Since Shane has moved onto a specialized section I don’t have the frequent daily interactions with him that I use to. After we caught up on family matters Shane gave me an envelope. I smiled as I already knew what was inside. I’m a person that loves to give but is somewhat uncomfortable at receiving. I truly appreciate that the PT family has the trust and faith in Sahar and I and continued their unwavering support in warmingthehomeless.

Merry Christmas to Vania, Mary, Shane and Julio. Bless you all!
With all our love, Sahar & Randy. 

December 14, 2020 – Everyone has a hero!

One of our greatest gifts in in this journey is those we’ve met along the way. From the very first time I spoke with him he has never forgotten us. More often than not, he has reached out to us wanting to ensure that we have what we need. He always seems to be there for us.

Tom H. who humbly stays away from any recognition for his generosity has quietly supported  warmingthehomeless since 2016.

Tom H donation

Our annual donation of Toques and socks from Tom H.

Tom’s donation will support 52 winter packages and ultimately that means 52 less fortunate individuals will be that much warmer this Christmas.

Merry Christmas Tom!

December 13, 2020 – A new addition to our inventory.

Sahar and I often think about what we can do for those whom are less fortunate and exposed to natures winter weather. We have bantered about many different ideas but this seemed to fill a need for those we meet living on the streets.  We managed to garner enough funds to add Cup a soup to our winter packages. The positive feedback can be immediately seen on their faces. That’s enough for Sahar and I to keep this new addition to our inventory. Ah but there’s more .

What we’ve also noticed for sometime now is that many unattached residents sleep under their jacket, cardboard or tarp. Over half of the people we meet have no sleeping bags. While a regular sleeping bag is great for warmth but without a tent the sleeping bag attracts moisture and eventually becomes damp. Any living on the streets do not have the ability to air out the sleeping bag in order to get it dry. Sahar and I specifically added the wool blend blankets. They are water resistant and mold resistant. Although we have limited amount of them, Sahar and I selectively hand them out. 

Earlier this month Sahar and I found and exceptional product that we felt was suitable for the needs of the homeless. Sahar immediately reached out to the manufacturer and we managed to purchase 100 reusable sleeping bags for our winter package inventory.


The reusable sleeping bags are similar to emergency blankets . Sahar and I have decided to keep these items in our vehicles and dispense them to those in need of extra warmth.

Sahar and I hope to keep these reusable sleeping bags as part of our regular inventory for our winter packages.

December 4, 2020 – It’s a Global Relay family thing.

Sahar was busy at work when one of the Global Relay staffer’s (Nels) wife and son (Darla & Kai) stopped in. Sahar has seen Kai grow up over the past years and he always looks forward to visiting the office to see Sahar. It is not unusual to garner a relationship with staff members. Many remain acquaintances and some become actual friends. For Sahar and I, Nels, Darla & Kai have actually become family.

On this particular visit Kai came to present Sahar with a Christmas Card. Inside the card was a donation to warmingthehomeless.


This was an exception opportunity for Kai to learn and experience giving and donating. Sahar explained to Kai what warmingthehomeless does to provide packages to those living on the streets.

Thank you Kai, Darla & Nels for your lovely card, your continuous support and passing the Christmas Spirit onto the next generation.

❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. 

December 1, 2020 – It’s matter of seeing where your donation goes.

Sahar texted me from work as she just received a donation from Global Relay. Sahar and I are truly humbled by their generosity but more so of their faith and trust in us. Global Relay’s continued support helps provide some warmth to the unattached residents during this cold & wet winter.

Sahar and I wish all the employees of Global Relay and their family and friends, the joyous of this festive holiday season.

❤️❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy. 

November 10, 2020 – Timely donation.

Sahar and I were in our basement organizing all the toques, socks, gloves, ponchos and packets of tea, coffee & hot chocolate that we put into our winter packages. As we started on the items for women Sahar mentioned how low we were on the small shampoo, conditioner bottles, body lotion, hand & facial soaps, sewing kit & vanity kits. These are the items you generally find in the hotels. I mentioned to Sahar that we receive these as donated items. Sahar mentioned that we were running low and I replied we’ll put what we can in each of the women’s packages until we’re out. Sahar replied hopefully we’ll get some more donations.

The following day I was in my office when one of my coworkers and close friends popped in holding a brown shopping bag. She politely asked if we were still interested in these items and held the bag open for me to see.


I was absolutely amazed at what I saw and told V. P-T. of the discussion Sahar and I had the previous night. All these items made it into 26 women’s packages.

Bless you V. P-T for the timely donation.
❤️Sahar & Randy.

October 31, 2020 – Halloween surprise.

Due to COVID-19 Trick or Treating was a social taboo for many families. Sahar’s bestie’s daughter would miss out so we decided to host a Halloween dinner and bought a variety of candy and presents for her. Sahar and I prepped a delicious dinner menu for the evening and dressed accordingly for the occasion. We decorated the dining room table and kitchen island countertop and when they arrived we greeted them with a ghostly welcome. It was a classic night of laughter and great conversation held over a feast of tasteful food. The highlight came when Sahar’s best friend surprised us with a generous donation. It was absolutely unexpected as this evening was for them and their young daughter. Sahar and I want to thank Roxi, Kout and Kiki for their continued love & support of our little foundation.

❤️❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

October 28, 2020 – Work family support!

A shout out to Trina S. and family for thinking about warmingthehomeless. The feminine hygiene products will help complete additional women’s packages.

We appreciate your donation as they help us provide some basic comforts to those less fortunate.
❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

October 26, 2020 – Our Special Thanks and Love.

Sahar and I are eternally grateful to Duff & Gen R. for their generosity and continued support but more importantly to us, their unequivocal trust.

Your exceptionally generous donation will assist us in providing for 50 less fortunate people.

Thank you for helping this little foundation keep giving!
❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

September 26, 2020 – More than just neighbourly.

What a wonderful surprise to have such neighbours as Pat & Jo-Anne K. of APC ADVANTAGE PEST CONTROL LTD. Pat had quickly stopped by as Sahar and I were getting ready to head out to our friends. He handed us a an envelope that was addressed to Sahar and I at Warming the Homeless. Pat stated that his company donates to a charity every year and happened to stumble on our charity and then checked out our website.


The letter read,
Every year Advantage Pest Control makes a donation to a local organization as a way of giving back to the community that supports our business. This year, more than ever, the community needs organizations like warming the Homeless to extend a caring hand and kind word to those in need. We are pleased to offer our donation to assist you in the wonderful work you do in the community.

Pat & Jo-Anne / APC Advantage Pest Control, you donation will reach 25 less fortunate individuals this winter.

❤️❤️❤️Sahar & I want to thank you for such a generous donation.

May 4 / July 30 / August 17, 2020. – Thank you Alex!

Sahar and I want to thank Alex S. for his contributions throughout the spring and summer months. Sahar and I truly  appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness for donating your hard earned money toward a cause that we really believe in.

You are an impressive young man and are appreciative of your trust.

Thank you!

February 10, 2020 – ProRIDE North Vancouver, B.C.


During my time in the Traffic section I was introduced to Brian Antonio. He is an instructor with ProRIDE and invited me to engage with the riders on topics such as Motorcycle Riding,  Safety & Compliance under the BC Motor Vehicle Act and answer any questions that they may have. It developed into a great friendship and conversations surrounding riding baggers and big bikes.

Brian was the driving force behind a significant donation to It was truly unexpected and took Sahar and I completely by surprise.

A Shout out to ProRIDE and Brian for your generous donation that helped us stay on the positive side for inventory and our ability to maintain to supply local shelters, front line responders and medical agencies who assist the homeless.

Thank you Brain and all the instructors at ProRIDE!
❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

January 17, 2020 – A true gentleman is kind and caring.

I am deeply touched and practically teary over what just happened. I went to the local Husky gas station located on West 3rd and Forbes Avenue to refill my propane tank. We don’t have heat in the house that we’re renovating (for the past 3 1/2 years). I went inside and Ramin (excuse me if I misspelled your name) asked me if I wanted a Husky Awards card. He said that I would receive discounts on everything including the propane. Then he said, every penny counts. I replied, yes it certainly does and explained our predicament with the house, ex-wife and because of the kids, our need to complete the house in order to have shared custody. I reiterated, yes every penny counts. Ramin was so kind that he registered my Husky points card for me.

I added that Sahar and I have a non profit called and that my coworkers always drop pennies in the donation box. I added that we don’t care because it’s still money and will go toward building our winter packages. I said that our promise is to ensure that all the items are brand new, because if we truly care about those less fortunate, we don’t want to give someone our socks or a gloves that we intended to throw out because its worn out.

As I was explaining this to Ramin he opened his wallet.2FC44B09-C43B-4E25-A0B0-E20F26E5C1C9

I was literally brought to tears from the gesture of his generosity. In my profession, I sometimes lose hope in humanity. Every now and then you’ll meet someone who restores your faith.

I had never met Ramin before today. He went out of his way to register my Husky Card so that I could save money and then gave me his hard earned money for those less fortunate.

I was shocked and bewildered that Mr. Ramin actually trusted me. A true gentleman who took me at my word.

Mr. Ramin, thank you for being such a kind and thoughtful man to an absolute stranger and for opening my eyes and restoring my faith in people like you.

❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

January 14, 2020 – Every penny counts!

Sahar and I are truly blessed to have friends support this our hopes and dreams and especially of this foundation. Their personal generosity and continuous support of warmingthehomeless is a testament to believing and trusting in us, our views on helping with our judgment.

At every turn Paul G. finds a recycling opportunity into a donation!
We are truly thankful Paul G. for your friendship, constant support and continued commitment to this  grass roots non profit foundation.

❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

December 31, 2019 –  A truly Happy New Year!

I start very early in the morning and the routine is much the same everyday but today was New Year’s Eve and the office was void of staff. Shortly after lunch my office doorway was graced by the presence of a familiar face, past coworker & great friend, Cst. P-T. He was sporting a beard which actually looked good on him.  We greeted each other with holiday wishes and pre Happy News Year. when he handed me a Christmas Card. I thanked him and noticed the envelope was slightly padded. He had a smile on his face and said, this is more for Sahar. I thanked him and gave him my bro hug. We had worked together for approximately 2 1/2 years. It was one of the best and most productive teams I had ever worked with. Cst. P-T is absolutely one of the most meticulous officers I have worked with in my 30 years and has quite the sense of humour which I believe he gets from his mother.

Sahar and I opened the Christmas Card once we came home from our New Year’s celebration with family. I handed the card to Sahar and repeated what Cst. P-T said. Sahar opened the envelope and said, it’s full of money!

Donation Padilla-Thornton Family

And full it was!

Although it was after 1 am, I had to text Cst. P-T and wish him a Happy New Year and more importantly thank him, his beautiful wife and mother and his kind hearted father, for the generous donation!

What a great way to bring in the New Year and we give a huge shout to the P-T family who help keep this dream alive!

45 people will be provided with a little warmth this winter because of the P-T family donation.

Vania, Mary, Shane & Julio P-T,
❤️❤️❤️Sahar and I send to you our endless love & thanks !

December 28, 2019 – The “Crew” is group of very close friends that Sahar and I met with for dinner somewhere in the lower mainland. It is difficult to schedule everyone however we some how manage. Sahar and I were surprised by Kam & Gen when they handed us a bunch of McDonalds Coffee cards.

Donations McD's Coffee Cards - Kam & Gen I started this idea a few years back so that we could add a coffee card inside the winter packages. Many people through them out or don’t use them at all. Sahar and I thought it would be nice to provide a warm drink for those exposed to the constant cold and/or wet weather.

Kam & Gen didn’t disappoint as each card was completely full.

Their generous donation will provide eight less fortunate people with a nice warm drink.

Thank you for your friendship and endless encouragement and support.

💕 Sahar & Randy.

💕  To our family and friends and especially to our contributors,
Sahar and I wish you a joyous
holiday season!


Tuesday December 3, 2019 – Today Sahar met a dear friend of ours, Erica who also works as a member of the RCMP. Erica saw warmingthehomeless on Facebook and mentioned to Sahar that she wanted to donate.

Erica, thank you for your tireless support!

Thursday November 21, 2019 – Now that’s customer service!

Sahar and I have been buying men & women’s toques, socks, gloves, ponchos and all the other items inside our winter packages for the past 6 years. We frequent the same stores simply because the prices are exceptional reasonable.

IMG_7618Needless to say,  many of the staff and store managers have come to know us quite well and always know what we’re looking for.

Today was a bit of an exception because Linda, the store manager called Sahar, as she had a little donation for WTH.

Linda’s donations will help build a large number of women’s packages.

Thank you Linda for treating Sahar and I like preferred customers.
❤️❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

Sunday November 17, 2019 – A friend indeed!

Today was a great day to have something warm to drink and enjoy the company of a good friend. We met one of Sahar’s work mates from years gone by at the Timmies on Marine Drive. I shared in the laughter as they recollected past events, spoke of work and the homeless. I have something for you, Deirdre said as we walked to her car.

“Inkind” donations from Deirdre MacNicol.

Deirdre brought us a bag full of socks, gloves and toques. A true friend indeed!

Deirdre, thank you for such an enjoyable Sunday morning coffee conversation but more importantly your generous help with our cause through your “in kind” donation.

❤️❤️Sahar & Randy.

Thursday November 14, 2019.

The weather had been quite mild and it was a great opportunity for Sahar and I to reach out to our partners and replenish the stock of winter packages. Today I met with Assistant Fire Chief, Jeremy Duncan and the management team of the District of North Vancouver’s Fire & Rescue. Assistant Fire Chief Duncan had previously advised us that they running low on the winter kits that they carry on their trucks. Not only do they attend fire calls but medical emergencies as well. Many of our homeless in North Vancouver live outdoors in the bushes or beneath a bridge, near trails or walkways or overpass, in order to stay dry and warm. The winter packages are provided to the unattached residents when our firefighters cross paths with them during their calls for service in our community.

District of North Vancouver Fire & Rescue Services Chief Hutchinson, Assistant Chief Fortier, Acting Assistant Fire Chief Johnson, Assistant Fire Chief Gaudette, Deputy Chief Kennedy & Assistant Fire Chief Warner.

We wish to thank the fine men and women of the District of North Vancouver Fire & Rescue for their service to our community and helping us provide a little warmth for those less fortunate.

Saturday, November 2, 2019.  Our new partners and friends.

Sahar and I met with District of North Vancouver Assistant Fire Chief Jeremy Duncan and President of Richmond Firefighters Association (IAFF Local 1286) and recently promoted Richmond Fire Department’s Battalion Chief Cory Parker at the Lynn Valley Wave’s Cafe to discuss how warmingthehomeless could assist by providing winter packages for distribution by the Richmond Fire Department.

It was District of North Vancouver Assistant Fire Chief Jeremy Duncan who mentioned us to Cory. Since last year Cory’s wife Josee Paquin owner/operator of “uandiknit” has graciously promoted warmingthehomeless during the 2019 Knit City Convention that was held on Oct 5-6 at the PNE Forum in Vancouver, B.C. Josee made her patterns available, in kind for knitting contributions or cash donations.

All these items will be donated to the Women’s Centre.

Shout out to Josee Paquin & Cory Parker for you unwavering support, faith and trust in Sahar and myself.

Our love and respect to you both.

Define True Friend.

I asked some of my workmates what they define as a true friend. Many responded with; someone who is there for you, supports you, someone you can confide in, you can trust your kids with etc.

My definition of a true friend is someone who comes to your house, while you’re away training,  digs the trench to lay down hydro lines and once inspected back fills it for you according to code. He is like the brother I’ve always wanted but never had.

Paul G. has consistently donated to warmingthehomeless throughout the years but more importantly for Sahar and I, has selfishly helped us with our home renovations so that Sahar and I can have shared custody of my kids.

I am truly grateful for such a friendship and will always be indebted to him.

Thank you Paul G.  for your contribution to warming the homeless and to our lives.

Wednesday October 30, 2019.

When the Chief Operations Officer of the company you’re contracted to for providing Security services stops by to say hello, it always a nice surprise. Today, Sahar’s surprise was even more delightful, when Duff R. not only stopped by to chat but gave Sahar a generous donation to warmingthehomeless.

We appreciate the thoughtfulness of Mr. R’s donation but more importantly we are humbled by his faith and trust in us.

Monday, October 28, 2019. – “Our Winter’s blessing.”

As the sun sets earlier the temperature drops sooner and the darkness lasts longer. Sahar and I are building packages and definitely need the stock. While working at the North Vancouver RCMP Detachment today I received a call from Tom H. who was texted to advise that he was stopping by with toques and socks.

Tom H Donation 2019
Donation “In Kind” by Tom H.

For the past 3 years Tom has been the beacon of light that helps us overcome the fear of not having enough stock on hand in order to provide those agencies that we have developed a partnership and a friendship of trust.

We are indebted to Tom for keeping us floating in stock for our winter packages.

Thursday October 17, 2019.

Last night Sahar and I worked feverishly stuffing winter packages late through the evening because I had promised Miranda at the North Shore Women’s Centre that I would deliver 20 women’s packages. I should have checked with Sahar first to see if we had any pre-stuffed packages. (thanks my love)

Today I had the pleasure to meet the dedicated staff of the North Shore Women’s Center.


It’s a great place all the staff are very friendly and helpful. A woman seated at the computer stated that she loves the peacefulness and frequents the centre quite often.

Miranda, Lulu, Maryam, Michelle, Randy

Sahar and I wish to thank everyone at the North Shore Women’s Centre for assisting and supporting the women who grace their doorway.

Sahar and I want to acknowledge Ms. Josee Paquin @uandiknit for Josee’s support during the recent 2019 Knit City event held in Vancouver, B.C. Ms. Paquin was gracious enough to exchanged any one of her patterns for donations to help warmingthehomeless.

Sunday July 14, 2019.

Thank you Assistant Fire Chief Jeremy Duncan of the District of North Vancouver Fire Department, for putting us in contact with Cory Parker.

Sahar and I met with Cory Parker, President  Richmond Firefighters Association (IAFF Local 1286) today in Vancouver. Cory was interested to learn more about the kits we provide to the homeless and how our program works. Cory suggested that this service was something they could provide to Richmond or co-sponsor.

We discussed supplying Richmond Fire department with winter packages as we have the stock and many pre-made packages. Fortunately for us Cory’s girlfriend, Josee, is a knitwear designer. Cory explained that Josee is attending an annual knitting trade show later this year in Sept called “Knit City”. Cory hopes that Josee can provide us more exposure and gather those that knit to contribute to the stock of toques.

Sahar and I are really excited to assist Cory, the Richmond Fire Dept and those who are less fortunate with Winter packages this fall/winter.

Please checkout Josee’s designs on Instagram @unadiknit.

❤️❤️ to Cory and Josee for their assistance and helping spread the love and awareness to the homeless.

To all those who have donated to warming the homeless,
Sahar & I wish you and your families a warm & safe Holiday Season.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Friday December 21, 2018  – Today I met with our biggest benefactor Tom H. He had contacted us on Dec. 13 and asked us what we needed. Such a welcome surprise since we are now supplying more packages to the shelters than before.

donated by Tom H.

As the the fall began many of the stores brought in their winter stock. Sahar and I wasted no time in stocking up on the ponchos as we were concerned that the price may rise next year.  Thanks to Tom, we now have 100 toques and socks to complete the “winter” packages. Sahar and I will ensure that the packages are ready to go so that we can maintain a continuous supply to our partner agencies for this season and hand out as many as possible.

Our special thanks to Tom for his continuous support, faith & trust in warmingthehomeless.

Merry Christmas to Tom & Family.

Tuesday December 13, 2018 –  Some of the greatest things come in small packages. Sahar was greeted by one of her fellow employees with all these boxes of Candy Canes which he wanted to donate. He knows how much this cause means to Sahar and he wanted to do help. We were surprised to learn how many of the displaced love candy canes.

Monday August 27, 2018 – Tis the season.

I was paged to the front counter of the North Vancouver RCMP Detachment. There I met an eloquent woman Judith J. In her hands was a bag that she brought for warmingthehomeless. She personally knitted two scarfs and filled the bag with ponchos, socks, underwear and small Shampoo/Conditioner. Judith was accompanied by her husband David J, and broke the news to him that she donated all his hotel shampoo/conditioners. She laughed and he smiled that approving husband smile.

Judith & David J.

I asked Judith, how did she hear about warmingthehomeless. She said see saw the article in the North Shore News.

I arrived home after shift with donation in hand. Sahar was so surprised and couldn’t wait to peek inside the bag.

Last year (Friday December 29, 2017) Judith & David donated toques, socks & gloves.

We are so grateful for the time and effort that Judith & David J. took to gather up this donation & deliver it to us.

Your continued support, love and compassion shows in your eyes and in your actions.

Sunday February 4, 2018 – Exciting new start.

In January we received an e-mail from Mr Sayed Najibi advising he came across our efforts in the North Shore News and wished to make a contribution. Mr. Najibi was moving to North Vancouver in a couple of weeks and would arrange to drop of his donation at the local RCMP detachment. We met Mr. Najibi and his business associate and friend Ray and spent 2 hours chatting with them about absolutely everything.

Sahar and I would like to welcome Mr. Najibi and Ray to North Vancouver and thank them for their kind and generous donation.

Sunday December 31, 2017 – New Year’s Eve.… I came to work already tired and facing a 12 hour graveyard shift that ends at 5 am. I knew the night would be filled with party goers and revellers soon to be ringing in the new year. I was expecting a night full of  calls for service but I wasn’t expecting this.

When I walked into my office I was absolutely shocked at the two bins full of pre-bagged winter packages as well as extra blankets, gloves, toques and socks. I had to call Sahar and tell her. I sent her a photo as well because I really could not describe it all.

Our special thanks to Barb and Bob M. for your donation and the time and effort you put into gathering all these items and packaging them as well.

Thank you for warming the hands and hearts of the homeless.

Sahar & Randy.

Sometimes it great friends and family that really lend you hand, but Carlo R., a coworker of Sahar, has done more than we could have asked.

Initially Carlos asked if he could take one of the winter package for someone he knew might need it. He asked Sahar if he could help in someway. Sahar and Carlos talked about the items we purchase for the winter packages and he liked what he saw. Carlos asked Sahar if it would be okay if he purchased blankets to donate? Sahar was delighted to have such a kind and thoughtful coworker.

Carlos R., your donation will definitely reach the homeless this winter.

Our sincerest thanks for you support and kindness.

Today Sahar and I met with Tom H. at the North Vancouver RCMP detachment in order IMG_0002to receive his personal donation to warmingthehomeless. This was the first time Sahar had met Tom. I met him last year after he read an article in the North Shore News (Dec. 9 2016). Tom donated a significant amount of money and items that we really needed. This year was no different. Tom had reached our to me (as I had forgotten to get his number) and asked if we were still continuing our efforts (see Wednesday November 8, 2017).

Tom asked us, What do you need, exactly and he purchased exactly what we needed for warming the homeless.

Thanks to our local Lynn Valley resident and hero, his personal donation will assist in warming 200 homeless throughout the North Shore, Vancouver & New Westminster.

We received our first e-mail to I was delighted because we received an e-mail but an e-mail from Portland, Oregon? WOW!

Ms. Joan M. had viewed our website and offered us 55 shipping blankets and wished to know if we could pick them up. We thanked Joan for thinking of us and wanted to work out how we were going to pick them up. Unfortunately we were unable to accommodate retrieving these well needed blankets from Ms. Joan but the blankets were dropped off at her local Goodwill.

Ms. Joan M. of Portland, Oregon… we thank you for considering with your offer and spirit of giving and caring for those less fortunate.

Wednesday November 8, 2017.

Last year a local Lynn Valley resident contacted me after reading an article in the North Shore News about our homeless efforts. He, who prefers only to known as Tom H., personally warmed the feet, hands and head of 25 individuals through his generous donation. Sahar and I was so excited to accept his donation on behalf of that I completely forgot to ask for his permission to include his name on our website.

Well today, Tom contacted us to inquire if we were continuing our efforts in warming the homeless? We replied with an astounding, “of course”! We were delighted to hear from Tom H. because he is the type of person that wanted to fulfill our needs that will reach our objectives of providing winter packages to the homeless. Well, that is exactly what Tom did again this year without hesitation.

We owe our sincerest gratitude for Tom H’s donation but more importantly the personal time and effort he afforded to warm many of the homeless, this wet and cold winter.

I really love’s Tom’s reply and statement about the homeless when I requested to have a photograph with him for our website. He simply replied, I’d be ok if you mentioned  that a local Lynn Valley person Tom, or Tom H – made a contribution to help out.   And Tom H continued with,

“Most of us are so fortunate here on the North Shore, but some of us have just fallen through the cracks – we need to help them out! No one is cold and hungry and scared by choice.”

Bless you & thank you, Tom H.
Our sincerest gratitude,
❤️Sahar & Randy.
