We are thankful for the people of our community Nanaimo and area, as they donated 120 beautifully wrapped Christmas presents that were dropped off to shelters on December 16, 2019. We support Nanaimo Women’s Resource Center, Haven Society, Island Care Crisis Society (Samaritans House, Mary’s Place and Martha’s Place), Somenos House in Duncan and their Homeless Outreach through CWAV and IWAV on Saltspring Island. We are planning a benefit for May that will be a makeover for a few women who are ready to transition back into the community. This will be a fashion show and tea.
We are also grateful for the many businesses who open their offices us each year. In 2019 we had Yours and Mine Consignment Store, Lobelias Lair, Kris Ireland Marketing Director for the Old City Quarter in Nanaimo, Woodgrove Center who packaged 25 boxes on Black Friday they donated through guest services. North Town Center Mall, Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, Michelle Graham and Associates. Without the businesses stepping up and wanting to see this project successful, it would not run. So please let’s thank them for their wonderful contribution next time you visit their place of business,
