United Way and Johnny’s Popsicle Give-away

By 2025, United Way wants 1 million people to engage in acts of local love across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. This week, United Way has  teamed up with Vancouver-based artisan popsicle maker Johnny’s Pops to spread local love across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley in a sweet and surprising way. Look for a special ‘pop’ up cart in Mission, Port Moody, North Vancouver, New Westminster and Steveston from September 5th to 9th. Lucky passers-by can snap up one of two delicious Johnny’s Pops popsicles, made with B.C. strawberries or raspberries.


Johnny's artisan popsicle 
For your love in action

What: For every popsicle, United Way aims to raise awareness of its goal, inspiring local residents to reflect on what local love means to them. “This is local love in action, which is all about making our communities better,” said Michael Mcknight, President & CEO of United Way of the Lower Mainland. “It can be as small as surprising a neighbour with a treat, or as big as mobilizing thousands to help the most vulnerable people in our communities. Everyone can benefit from an act of local love.” The Johnny's Pop bicycle cart launched in May of 2013 and hit the streets to slang some tasty tasty handmade pops. These pops are not your regular pops, they are built for grownup taste buds, primarily using ingredients from BC. Find Johnny’s Pops at farmers markets and events around the city.
