From November 7-13, Popeyes will donate $1 from every Classic & Deluxe Chicken Sandwich Combo or Platter sold to support children and youth mental health programs at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
In addition to supporting therapy treatments such as music and art therapy, proceeds will also help transform the outdoor courtyard area at the Adolescent Day Treatment Program. Visit any Popeyes restaurant in the Lower Mainland for more info!
About the ADTP Courtyard
The Adolescent Day Treatment Program (ADTP) courtyard is located at the Shirley Dean Pavilion, which is well over 40 years old. Because of the lack of space inside the building, the outdoor courtyard is an additional space where many activities and treatments take place. The courtyard is a multi-purpose place that includes an outdoor gym, a vegetable garden and outdoor space for group therapy. From these activities, young patients learn how to grow vegetables and fruits and prepare meals as their lunch. They get the opportunity to experience how to take care of plants and learn the importance of starting and finishing a project. Witnessing the results of a project helps young patients feel proud and fulfilled. These experiences are instrumental in their recovery.
The current courtyard is old and outdated. It is not built to sustain hot and cold weather conditions. Many plants cannot survive. There is no storage space, greenhouse, covered area and seating. All of these seemingly simple items are important elements to the mental health programs.
Donations will transform this area into a beautiful and therapeutic space where youth can feel relaxed, safe and calm as they recover.
