BC Lions Paul Mccallum To Join CNOY

Screenshot_6Every year  at SUM Place we serve hundreds of people – needing a meal, a place to live or someone to talk to. We work with people of all races, creeds, nationalities, orientations, sizes, colors and religious beliefs. We believe in helping our neighbors no matter where they come from, no matter their economic background.

We help not because we have to, but because we can’t not.

The “Coldest Night Of The Year” event is an opportunity for our volunteers to invite their friends and families to join us, learn about our Mission and experience for a few hours what our friends and neighbors experience every day of their lives. This year we invited McCallum from the BC lions to join us and we are pleased he has agreed to WALK with us.

Paul McCallum will join hundreds of our closest volunteers and friends in walking to raise awareness about Homelessness and Poverty in Surrey.

The ‘Coldest Night of the Year Walk’ is now held in 81 communities across Canada, including 19 in B.C.  To donate, volunteer or sponsor a walker contact the Surrey Urban Mission at 604-581-5172 or check out our CNOY page Here.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Deco-Mesh-Christmas-Tree-798So much is happening here at the Mission right now. This is the Coldest time of the year for many of our friends so as you know our Extreme Weather Shelter program has begun. We’ve got our Christmas trees all set up and our decorations hanging. Our friends are excited to awake on Christmas Morning to see what Santa and his beautiful elves will bring as we are equally excited to work with Santa to give our homeless friends the best Christmas ever.

This our third year doing the Coldest Night of the Year challenge and we are excited to invite all of our friends, neighbors, volunteers, colleagues, and family members to join us and experience for one evening, what our friends experience every day of their lives.

Please head on over to our “Coldest Night of the Year” blog to check out our progress so far and join in the fun. You can donate, start a team or join a team. Every step counts to not only bringing awareness to the issue of homelessness and poverty, but eventually ending it all together.

Sums Summer time Adventure Camp

Screenshot_29

Here at Surrey Urban Mission Society it isn’t officially Summer until we hear the yelling, laughing, giggling squealing sounds bouncing and echoing off the walls. That’s how we know that Day camp has begun, and thus our Summer Adventure.

This year we have four amazing new head Leaders, Morgan, Shelly, Paulina and Tabby and if I do say so myself they have out done themselves with all the adventures they have planned.

June 30th-July 4th Art Attack: The kids will engage in Paint Wars, learn 3D Chalk Art, and enjoy Theater Sports.

July 7th-11th – All about Nature: The kids will take an amazing tour of Lynn Canyon, followed by a phenomenal nature based Scavenger Hunt. 

July 14th-July 18th – Around the World in Seven daysIndia, china, South Africa, France and Canada – the time will fly by so fast the kids won’t know what hit them.

July 21 – July 25th Celebrating Super Hero’s: Batman and Spiderman take on the Surrey RCMP and Fire Fighters to battle it out in epic battle of Superhero Supremacy. Who will win? Join us to find out. 

Each week is set up to be both fun and educational. Children are placed into 4 separate cabins with each cabin ranging in ages from five to thirteen. The older children get the opportunity to learn some responsibility for their younger counterparts and the younger children get the chance to meet kids they can look up to. 

Between Volunteers, Staff, Leaders, Leaders in training it sure is learning towards a seriously fun and busy Summer.

For more information contact Tabby, Paulina, Shelly or Morgan at 604-581-5172 or shoot us an email at [email protected]

We are located at 10776 King George Highway, Surrey BC right next to Aaron s Furniture.
