WHO WE ARE

HELPING PEOPLE HELP THEMSELVES

We are a registered non-profit society (BN: 815338801RR0001) formed to assist the residents of Nanoose Bay.

We provide:

  • Monthly grocery gift cards to help registered clients with at least one week’s worth of food per month
  • Emergency funds for shelter, medications, or other unexpected costs as they are deemed necessary
  • Referrals to partner agencies in the region (click here for an infographic which explains the roles of various agencies)
  • Through a subsidy to the local Nanoose Bay Elementary School (NBES), assistance to students for programs such as extracurricular activities, school excursions, etc. that would otherwise be unaffordable to them
  • Emergency dental and optical care
  • Christmas gifts for families and seniors

 

We receive no government funding.

Our operations are run completely by volunteers and we run on money, supplies and services donated by members of the community.
