Langley Community Chest Fund
We have an account (#158) at the Langley Bottle Depot located at 20137 Industrial Avenue. Your recycling can add to our fund at the Langley Community Chest Fund. This Fund supports creative opportunities for bringing people together from all ages and walks of life to have fun, build relationships and enhance the feeling of belonging in Langley. This idea grew out of conversations amongst Langley Citizens who recognized the need to build a more inclusive community through free events.
You can make a cash donation or drop off a cheque at our office. Or, you can mail your cheque to You've Gotta Have Friends, 20510 Fraser Highway, Langley BC, V3A 4G2. Please make cheques payable to LACL/YGHF. The Langley Association for Community Living (LACL) is our umbrella charitable organization and issues receipts for donations.
