Stories of emerging impact
When the COVID-19 lockdown hit, the SFU Surrey CEC shut down 21 programs and sent home more than 100 volunteers. Thanks to the passion and courage of SFU students, even a global pandemic can’t stop the SFU Surrey – TD Community Engagement Centre’s (SFU Surrey CEC) volunteer-run programs.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created a new barriers to learning and connecting for low-income families in Surrey, we have started a Tech Initiative to provide laptops for children and youth in need to participate equitably.
SFU Food Hub is a site where SFU students can collect free, weekly groceries. If you are facing the challenge of meeting your daily needs on a reduced income, we can help.
SFU’s Community Engagement Initiative offers small grants to catalyze community-university impact through the practice of respectful, mutually-beneficial research, learning and creative activity.
SFU’s Office of Community Engagement is working with other SFU units to catalyze the emergence of a SFU-Community COVID-19 Response and Recovery Network.
Burnaby community members, Telus and SFU form an alliance to get vulnerable communities online during the COVID-19 emergency.
