Testimonial

"My Brother Byron needed transport from Surrey to the VGH BMT-AML Unit for Chemo over 4 months. I could not be there for him but your divers were. He was rested, at ease and the kind company put him in a healing frame of mind. You are Angels on Wheels. Thank you is not enough to say." ...Randy Hauer

An Amazing Christmas Gift

We just received a $30,000 In-kind security gift from a gentleman in Langley. Giving through an In-kind security donation is a win-win for all. The donator gives their original investment (stock or mutual fund) and accrued gains and pays no capital gains tax plus a charitable tax receipt for the total amount donated. The VCDS receives the investment (including capital gains) and pays no tax.
