VANCOUVER – A trust fund to help the young girl who both lost her grandmother and was hospitalized after an incident of fatal domestic violence in Vancouver’s East End has been established by Adrian Dix, New Democrat leader and MLA for Vancouver Kingsway.
“After a fatal act of domestic violence left this little girl facing great loss and injury, both my constituents and people across this city have expressed a shared concern for her future wellbeing. Starting today, they can make contributions to the ‘Kingsway Child’s Fund’, established for her at the Community Savings Credit Union,” said Dix, who made the initial contribution to open the trust fund.
People who want to donate can visit any of the Community Savings Credit Union branches in the Metro Vancouver and Victoria listed below. Donations by cheque should be made out to “Kingsway Child’s Fund” and mailed to the Vancouver branch. For more information, they can also call Community Savings at 604-654-2000 or toll free 1-888-963-2000.
In the coming days, there will also be information on how people from other parts of the province who wish to help can donate through different credit unions.
