Co-Founder / Board Member
Dugie currently attends Acadia University on the East Coast of Canada, and is one of the co-founders of the Bumpin Bakery Foundation. As of now Dugie does as much as he can well away from university, but dives right back into it when he gets back to Vancouver. He loves
to get down to the Downtown East Side on Sundays when he is back because of the joy it brings to people when there is the opportunity to talk to people.
Teacher Sponsor / Board Member
Euphemia (left) has been the art teacher at Vancouver College for five years, and is the teacher sponsor of Bumpin Bakery. Euphemia came to one of our first Sunday handouts with her two sons Micah and Oscar, and now they are all friendly faces that the residents look forward to seeing every Sunday. The
day-to-day operations of the organization including but not limited to baking, and receiving donations, are overseen by Euphemia. She has been an integral part of the continued success of the organization, and provides an excellent example of leadership to our youth volunteers.
Co-Founder / Board Member
Regan (right) currently attends the University of British Columbia, and is one of the co-founders of Bumpin Bakery. He completes administrative tasks such as donor relations, maintaining an online presence, and selecting student representatives of the organization. As he resides in Vancouver, Regan still attends Sunday handouts when possible and has witnessed the organization grow from humble beginnings into the operation it is today. His favourite part of Bumpin continues to be listening to, and connecting with the residents of Vancouver’s Downtown east side at our Sunday handouts.
Each year Bumpin Bakery selects 3 to 5 grade 12 student representatives from Vancouver College. The representatives are selected based on commitment and interest in the organization in their years prior to grade 12, and are chosen by a committee that includes past student representatives, the teacher sponsor, and 2 board members. The student representatives are responsible for making the baked goods, acting as a liaison between students and staff, as well as representing the organization within the Vancouver College community. The representatives are expected to demonstrate the core values of the organization, and be leaders to our many youth volunteers.
