UBC TSC Student Athletes delivering the Hamper on a snowy Vancouver day!

For the first time since the program’s launch, seven UBC Thunderbirds Sports Clubs came together this holiday season to give back to the community and spread some cheer. With a family of five (two parents, and three children) in need, the teams worked to put together a hamper of food and gifts before bringing it to the Downtown Eastside.

Between wrapping up the first part of their competitive seasons, and beginning their Semester One final exams, the student athletes found time to buy and drop off cans of food, blankets, children’s toys, clothing, and gift cards to the Student Recreation Center. Filling more bags and boxes than 5 people could realistically carry, everything was successfully delivered over the weekend to smiling faces, holiday cheer and a lot of falling snow.

Thank you to Alpine Ski, Dragon Boat, Lacrosse, Nordic Ski, Sailing, Women’s Tennis and Women’s Ultimate for taking the time to make this happen and touching the lives of 5 individuals in our Vancouver Community.
