Vancouver Firefighters 4th Annual Umbrella Day Campaign
"We've Got You Covered!"



Vancouver Firefighters are once again taking to the streets to help end child hunger in our city’s schools. On Thursday, October 26th from 7:30 am – 10:00 am Firefighters will be volunteering their time to raise both money and awareness for the Snacks for Kids Program by selling umbrellas at four major downtown hubs:


  • Waterfront Skytrain Station
  • Burrard Street Skytrain Station
  • Granville Street Skytrain Station
  • Yaletown Skytrain Station
  • London Drugs at Georgia and Granville (main hub)


The Snacks for Kids Program provides 200,000 healthy snacks for over 12,000 at-risk students in 30 Vancouver schools every year. Vancouver Firefighters not only commit countless hours volunteering for this program but they also support it with generous payroll deductions. 

Umbrella Day is your opportunity to come out and meet your Firefighters, buy an umbrella and help fight child hunger in Vancouver school. Rain or shine...let’s make it a great day!
