“Welcome to Eastvan” has been a long time fixture in the East Side community, Rob Geary and Luis Galvan founded the brand to help inspire the community to embrace, develop and evolve its identity. The boys live and work in the DTES and are surrounded by people that need assistance, particularly around the winter.

They want to repeat the past success they had with the 12 Days of Giving donating over 4000lbs of food and several thousand dollars to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. This time they want to include other communities of Vancouver.

So, they will be posted on various corners of the East Side for 12 days (currently under way), collecting food for the food bank until the good people of Vancouver fill their van ‘The East Van’ with non-perishable food. from December 13 to 24, you can find them at a location near you.
