Living on a beautiful, yet disaster-prone island means having an emergency plan ready at all times.

Unfortunately for many homeless and at-risk youth in Victoria, having an emergency kit is too expensive, and often not prioritized.

So Threshold Housing Society has partnered up with GetMyKit.ca to provide the youth in their program with emergency kits in case of a natural (or man-made) disaster.

Here’s how you can help:

When you purchase an emergency kit from GetMyKit.ca for yourself, use the coupon code “Threshold” to get a discount.

This discounted portion off of your purchase will go directly to Threshold Housing Society. Their goal is to sell 80 kits, which would give them enough funds to provide emergency kits to all the youth in their program.

Located on Fort Street, Threshold Housing Society provides transitional housing and services to youth who are at risk of becoming homeless.
