Helping Mission Possible Create Lasting Change in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside
Mission Possible is a charity that provides opportunities for people experiencing homelessness or poverty. They do amazing work providing employment for those that need a helping hand. Each year Long Life makes a donation on behalf of our customer’s ranging from $10-$150 per project. While the individual amounts may seem minor, the total is significant, and helps this charity continue their valuable work. This organization absorbs administration costs, 100% of funds donated go directly to those in need.
This past year, Long Life’s Owner Kris Alexander is the Board Chair and was able to speak at the Annual Gala. The event raised over $250,000. It was also a chance to help recognize all of the generous donors along with the individuals (like Shawna) that have worked hard through the program to get back into the work force. The team at Mission Possible highlighted Long Life’s involvement on their blog and we wanted to share that story with you here are well.
