Collecting Christmas Gift Boxes for the Reiderman Residences 為馬寶區臨時組合屋 籌募聖誕禮物盒

The Reiderman Residences is a temporary modular housing project in Marpole. It houses 79 former homeless men and women, including 14 of them who are physically handicapped. The temporary buildings will provide much-needed housing for up to 10 years while more permanent housing is built. The Reiderman Residences provides former homeless residents with access to safe, secure homes. The buildings are managed by Community Builders Group, a professional, non-profit housing operator that staffs and manages the building 24 hours a day and provides tenants with supports to help them lead healthy and safe lives.

馬寶區臨時組合屋為無家可歸者提供了可達十年的安全居所。79戶住客之中包括了14戶有身體殘障的住客。組合屋由專業、非謀利的 Community Builders Group 管理,每天24小時派員支援住客投入健康安全的生活。

Westside Baptist Church is committed to becoming a good neighbour. Since occupancy we have been collaborating with various community groups to welcome the residents at Reiderman to Marpole, and witnessing to them the love of Christ. At Christmas, we particularly want to bless the residents with Christmas gifts.
