Gear to Give 2018 - 3rd Annual Fundraiser & 10th Anniversary!

Come celebrate the 10th anniversary of Working Gear Clothing Society at our 2018 "Gear to Give" fundraiser!

Above: Highlights from Gear to Give 2017 – Special thanks to WorkSafeBC for creating this video.

Our Gear to Give fundraiser will be an inspirational evening of networking, drinks, and food. Building on the success of our inaugural event in 2016, and with 200 attendees at last year’s 2017 event, Gear to Give 2018 will be held at the Vancouver Club with space for double the number of attendees. Our biggest fundraiser yet!

Proceeds will help improve access to appropriate Working Gear for underprivileged men, so they can become properly equipped to enter the workforce. Funds raised at last year’s event facilitated our move into a more central location at 520 Powell Street after the roof collapsed at our previous location on Kingsway. This more central space has helped increase awareness of what we do, and has allowed us to become much more accessible to our clientele! We are seeing improved outreach and an increasing turnover of materials – Positive signs of our impact in the community, and of our growth as an organization!

Our goal this year is to raise $75,000 to expand our reach and help 1,000+ men return to the workforce in 2018!

Please contact us if your company is available to sponsor this event.

Gear to Give

Last year, our first annual Gear to Give event raised over $20,000 for Working Gear. We hope you’ll join us again this year to raise even more!

Join us for an inspirational evening of networking, drinks, food and fundraising in support of Working Gear. Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event which, with over 150 attendees and approximately $20,000 raised, was transformational for Working Gear, we expect to host more than 200 guests primarily from Vancouver’s business community.

This year’s event is of even greater importance given the recent flooding of our facility due to heavy snowfall and our search for a new home. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to find a new location for the next three years and help hundreds more men re-enter the workforce.
