A few blog posts ago, we mentioned that we were sponsoring Union Gospel Mission (UGM) for their annual Downtown Eastside BBQ that took place this past weekend, July 18th, 2015. Here is a little re-cap of the day!
Five members of the Canadian Web Hosting team arrived at the local Oppenheimer Park in the morning to assist the staff with set up and preparation of food.
UGM was prepared to serve 5,000 meals between 11:00AM – 3:30PM. Each meal that were to be handed out would include a burger, a smokie, some coleslaw, pasta salad, a beverage, and a Freezie. Can you imagine? That means 5,000 burgers, 5,000 smokies, 5,000 beverages, 1,500lbs of coleslaw, 1,500lbs of pasta salad, and 5,000 Freezies! Thankfully, the weather was cooperative and we were surrounded by UGM staff and volunteers, plus local chefs who were able to support us through the whole barbecue.
From 11:00AM onwards, the volunteers did not stop, nor did the line get any shorter! The BBQ was in full swing throughout the whole day. In addition to meals being served, a water station, and activities for young children were readily available to the public. UGM also celebrated their 75th birthday with cake! Lunch AND dessert? Nothing makes an event better than that! Thank you UGM for hosting another successful and engaging event!
This was a great experience for the Canadian Web Hosting team to get involved with UGM once again. We love helping our community, especially with an organization dedicated to helping men, women, and youth in Vancouver.
