THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED US RISE OVER $4000 FOR THE LANGLEY FOOD BANK

THANK YOU EVERYONE!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼
.
❤️MONEY RAISED FOR LANGLEY FOOD BANK – $4,085 | Tons of non perishable food donations!!!!❤️
.
WOW, HUGE THANK YOU to everyone in our community for supporting our Langley Food Bank food drive and fundraiser the past weekends!! The community response absolutely exceeded our expectations. It was incredible how many people took time out of their day to drop off non perishable food donations at the Royal Lepage Wolstencroft Office for those in our community that are in need. We initially organized this mainly as a food drive since we understood that people may not be in a position to donate cash during these uncertain times however the amount of people that wanted to help and donate cash for those in need was incredibly overwhelming. So again we want to give a massive THANK YOU as well for the generous cash donations from our friends, family members, work colleagues and the community to help the Food Bank during this time. Again THANK YOU to everyone who contributed for helping spread the word and for their support. Thank you Royal Lepage Wolstencroft office and the very generous colleagues and Realtors within the office #bestofficeever for their support as well as the other local Rockstar Realtors who supported the fundraiser in the Real Estate community!!! You know who you are!! With your help we raised an incredible $4,085 for Langley food bank and dropped off multiple loads of non perishable food items. You guys ROCK. we rallied as a community to help our community we live in. That’s what it’s all about. We will get through this together ! Cheers

BC PREPARES TO START TO OPEN UP THE ECONOMY AND HERE IS HOW THEY PLAN TO DO IT

BC’s Restart Plan lays out a series of steps that we will take together to protect people and ensure that our province can come back from COVID-19 stronger than before.

Around the world, governments have taken different approaches to try to bend and flatten the curve of transmission — from complete lockdowns to quarantines and varying intensities of physical distancing.

From the outset, B.C. established clear guidance, transparency and an evidence-based approach as hallmarks of our fight against COVID-19.

Protective measures B.C. has taken have included:

  • Providing physical distancing and hygiene guidelines for people, businesses and essential services to follow
  • Banning mass gathering of more than 50 people to reduce the risk of outbreaks
  • Closing bars, dine-in service at restaurants, and personal service operators, like barbers and dentists, to reduce the risk of transmission
  • Reducing in-classroom learning and child care
  • Requiring travellers to develop and stick to a 14-day isolation plan when arriving in B.C. from abroad
  • Restricting visitors to health care and assisted living facilities to protect some of our most vulnerable people
  • Postponing non-urgent and elective surgeries while maintaining urgent and emergency procedures

Working together we’ve made a lot of progress. These protective measures and restrictions have directly saved lives, but we also know that the public health benefit has come at some expense, including the economic, social and personal well-being of many British Columbians.

CHECK OUT THE LATEST SNAPSTATS VIDEO FOR APRIL IN THE FRASER VALLEY

Check out the latest SnapStats video for the Fraser Valley. Due to the pandemic we are not seeing the typical number of sales we would see at this time of year. However there has been almost no change in benchmark prices in either condos, townhomes or single family home. In fact prices are slight up over last month and also up over this time last year. The SnapStats indicate that we are currently in a ‘balanced market’

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FOOD BANK!

In the unprecedented times we find ourselves in, more and more people are struggling financially and need extra assistance to get through these very difficult times.

One of the support systems they can reach out to is the local Food Bank. Unfortunately, food donations are way down and they are struggling to keep up with the needs of families that need them more now than ever.

Donations at the Langley Food Bank are way down and they are in dire need of all non perishable goods but most specifically the following items:

• Canned vegetable
• Canned fruit
• Canned soup
• Diapers
• Baby wipes
• Snack foods, crackers, cookies etc.

We know that going to the supermarket is daunting right now and we are all trying to avoid it as much as possible. However, if you do make the trip in the near future, please consider picking up a few extra items for the Food Bank or if you have items in your cupboards at home that you could donate we would be extremely grateful!

The Food Bank is also happy to receive donations of cash or supermarket gift cards.

We would be extremely happy to swing by and pick up any items (at a safe distance) and we will also be having a safe drop off day (we will let you know soon the day, time and place) where you can drop off items and safely say  hi.

You can also donate directly to the Langley Food Bank 

Thank you in advance for any items you can donate!!

Check out the March 2020 SnapStats for the Fraser Valley.

The typical ‘Spring Market’ made a great start in March but the need for social distancing meant we had to make some big changes on how we do business and that was bound to have an impact on sales. Take a look at the SnapStats Video for the Fraser Valley – March 2020.

COVID 19 – FINANCIAL RESOURCES FOR BC RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES

There is absolutely no doubt about it, we are facing a very challenging time due to the COVID 19 virus. It is impossible to turn on any kind of media and not be bombarded with facts and figures about contamination and fatality numbers. Social distancing and self isolation, things that we had never heard of a few weeks ago have become the forefront of our lives. We are isolated from our loved ones, friends and co-workers and we don’t know when this pandemic will come to an end.

One of the major effects of the pandemic is on businesses, large and small. One after another businesses are having to shut down and the knock on effect of this is laying off employees. Hard working Canadians are suddenly finding themselves without a pay cheque, no way to pay their rent or Mortgage or put food on the table.

The Government of Canada has recognized the catastrophic ramifications of the virus on a huge sector of the population and as such, they have put in place several remedies in response to this situation.

SUPPORT FOR INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILY

From individual payments to Canadian Residents, to covering 75% of the wage bills for businesses, there is help for people that need it.
