Our Holiday Donation Drives have come to a close! Thank you to everyone who donated and shared our posts around!
We did two separate drives this year, one more of a stocking drive for those in need/on the streets, and another a gift drive for families/youth in need.
This was our first time putting on donation drives as a Non-Profit and we were pretty blown away with the response and donations with the short notice that we planned it all in. It was definitely a learning experience of how we can facilitate these more smoothly in the future, but really powerful to see the kind of collective impact that we can make. We’re really excited to see what happens with efforts like this as our network expands further, so thank you for being a part of of this journey we’re on of creating resilient and connective communities.
Special thanks to Alex Ritz and his company, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, in Coquitlam for hosting the drop off location over the weekend and dropping the donations off.
With the help of our community, we were able to collect enough items to fill two large trucks and a regular sized car for the stocking drive, and Alex’s Skedaddle work van for the gift drive.
Items were donated to charity organizations for distribution in Aldergrove, Vancouver, and the Tri-Cities area.
Remember that you can join us on our Collaborative Community Events even if you’re not local to us or where our network has expanded to. You can be engaged right where you are! Get in touch with us if there’s an event we’re wanting to put on that you’d like to host in your area and we will partner with you just like we did with Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control!
Send us some pictures/videos of you joining in on these collaborative events, we will share on our social media and show the impact we’re creating together around the globe.

Wildlife Prepare for Colder Nights!
The temperature is starting to drop. As the Winter season brings cool nights and falling leaves, urban wildlife in your neighbourhood will be looking to get out of the cold.
This is the time of year when adult populations of raccoons, squirrels and mice reach their peak and all of the babies born this past spring begin to leave their mother’s care and strike out on their own. These furry troublemakers will prepare for winter by finding their way into homes and attics to escape the cold.
This is why it is important to protect your home from wildlife or deal with any concerns you have before winter when the snow falls, the ground freezes and animals sleep longer.
Fortunately, you can trust Skedaddle to make it right. After a thorough assessment of your home is complete, we will have humanely removed the wildlife, cleared and repaired any damage, and protected your home from future unwanted animal visitors.

Don’t give the uninvited guests in your home the chance to settle in for winter. Connect with Skedaddle today.
