From the website of St. Paul’s Anglican Church, which is partnering with First Baptist Church:

Every year, the City of Vancouver joins communities and organizations to raise  public awareness on homelessness issues – thus, Homelessness Action Week : October 7 to October 13.

The Advocacy Office of St. Paul’s partners with the First Baptist Church annually to provide some much needed services for the homeless and poverty situations all under one roof.

Some services we provide include:

-Free Hearing tests
-Dental Hygiene Advice
-Free haircuts
-Income Tax filing

What we need:

– socks                           – fit all gloves              – hand lotions
