Community Give Back Event - Year 3

I knew while building the LykkiPlex last June that we would be hosting some fun events in the space so when we had the opportunity to partner with the Vancouver Chapter of the Entrepreneurs Organization I knew the night was going to be a ton of fun.
Lykki has been a part of this Give Back initiative since the inaugural event a few years ago and the premise is quite simple. Collect a ton of donations and create Give Back Bags to hand out to less fortunate people on the streets of Vancouver.
The bags this year included necessities like gloves, socks, toothbrush and toothpaste along with food and even fresh fruit.
Our goal was 1500 bags and we we so excited to see a small army of friends, staff and EO members attend for the packaging night. The logistics of packaging and procuring the product for the bags is really where the hard work come into play so he held the event pre Christmas. The date we decided to deliver the bags this year will be in January at the advice of downtown shelters who told us the biggest need is at this time - not Christmas.
Thank you to everyone who made the Give Back Packaging Night a huge success.
