Maple Ridge Community Chest

Neighbors helping neighbors in their time of need is the theme behind the Maple Ridge Community Chest initiative. This is a pilot project between the Maple Ridge Community Foundation and the Ridge Meadows Katzie Community Network. Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Community Services is the organization that is hosting the project by working with vendors and processing requests. Community organizations, that are part of the pilot project, can refer individuals and families to access the fund to address a short-term financial crisis. This is a local initiative where community members are helping those in the community in need of a critical helping hand. The Community Chest organizers are asking community members to host events and fundraisers for the initiative and have set a day in February as Maple Ridge Community Chest Day. Please contact the main office of Community Services, 604-467-6911, for questions or donations. Vicki Kipps Executive Director
