At YVR, we believe we have a responsibility to the communities we serve and the people who live in them. Building meaningful relationships with the community through partnerships connects our business values with our social responsibility.
That's why we are so happy to launch the YVR Socks program, giving the public access to awesome airport apparel while also giving back to organizations and individuals who need it most.
We are partnering with Covenant House Vancouver to distribute warm socks to homeless and at-risk youth in the Lower Mainland. Covenant House has been providing clothing, housing and support services to youth for over 20 years. Clean socks are in constant need for those living on the street, and Covenant House Vancouver will distribute donated socks to youth at their Drop-In Centre, as well as hand them out on the streets to homeless youth.
