Raven Supply has been a part of the Vancouver Sun “Adopt a School” program since 2014. Supporting Frank hurt, an inner city school where many of the students benefit from the program. We saw a need in our community and decided we needed to give back.
Whether it’s a bus pass, covering fee’s for sports teams or purchasing steel toed boots for carpentry class, or covering graduation fee’s the Raven Funds are there to help. The staff at Frank Hurt decide where the funds go throughout the year. As the years go on, students are becoming more familiar with the program and are starting to ask for help when they need it.
Raven Supply actively hires estimators from the UBC Engineering Co-op program. This year Alex Lim joined the team. Before UBC he was a student at Frank Hurt. He excelled even in the inner city environment, and was proud to know that Raven supports the school where his sister still attends. Rebecca, Alex’s sister helps run the Frank Hurt STEM Club. The STEM club is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math club.
Raven Supply hopes these funds given to Frank Hurt on an Annual Basis will provide opportunities for many more students to excel, to give them confidence and see them move on to University.
The Vancouver Sun published an article right in time for Giving Tuesday, featuring the Adopt a School Program. Read the article here.
The Raven Team encourages more companies to give back to their local communities. We have had the pleasure of receiving annual reports from Frank Hurt, and personal letters from students who have benefited from the program. It is always amazing to see how far the funds can go. Sometimes a little help is all that is keeping youth from succeeding.
