My Perfect World

 

“In my perfect world…no child would go hungry, not on the weekend, not ever” – Constable Janine Tanino

 

The Strathcona Backpack Program, run out of the Strathcona Community Centre, provides healthy and nutritious food
for children over the weekend, when their school’s lunch program doesn’t run.
Constable Janine Tanino saw that the program was underfunded so she asked
the Vancouver Police Foundation for help.

You too can support Cst. Tanino and her vision of a perfect world in which no child goes hungry.
Your gift today will help ensure that 450 children will not go hungry this year and fund
much-needed programs like the Strathcona Backpack program.

“In my perfect world…kids don’t get involved in gang life.” – Constable Alex Charles

 

As a former member of the VPD Gang Crime Unit and alumnus of the UBC Thunderbirds Football team, Cst.Charles developed
two anti-gang programs – Gang Tackle and Turning Point – that provide education and alternative choices for
at-risk youth who are vulnerable to the drug trade or gangs.

Cst. Charles strongly believes that sport, combined with mentoring, can help deter vulnerable youth away from a life of crime.
Since 2014, his funding from the Vancouver Police Foundation has reached nearly 600 youth. Many of them have
turned their lives around with one participant completely abandoning a life of crime and drugs to being awarded a
football scholarship to a university in California.

You too can support Constable Alex Charles and his vision of a perfect world in which kids don’t fall into gang life.
Your gift today will help us fund much-needed programs like Gang Tackle and Turning Point.
