Chilliwack, B.C (June 9, 2015)

On June 3, Chances Chilliwack confirmed its commitment to the Chilliwack Bowls of Hope Society as its chosen signature charitable partner with a donation of $1,000.

“We support many different charitable organizations and community initiatives, but our newly formed partnership with the Bowls of Hope Society will allow us to build a relationship that will overtime provide both financial and non-financial support,” said Chris Lynn, General Manager, Chances Chilliwack.

Since 2005, the Chilliwack Bowls of Hope Society has operated the Feed the Children Program through donations of funds, food and the efforts of offenders and community-based volunteers of the Chilliwack Community Correctional Centre. The program currently provides soup and other hot lunch items to 19 schools within the Chilliwack School District where over 600 children receive more than 10,000 bowls of soup each month.

“We are so thrilled to have Chances Chilliwack support us in this manner and are extremely thankful for all their efforts. Standing behind a grassroots community organization such as the Chilliwack Bowls of Hope Society shows how passionate Chances Chilliwack is about making a difference in their community,” said Cindy Waters, Director of Volunteer Services with the Chilliwack Bowls of Hope Society.
