YANA is generously upheld by the spirit and kindness of the Comox Valley. Check out what is going on and learn about amazing supportive efforts taking place within our community. We respect the privacy of our individual donors, as such this is a sampling of donations where public acknowledgement is appropriate.

YANA sends gratitude to the Potter’s Place and all the super talented potters in the Comox Valley Potters Club for their ongoing fundraising commitments to YANA. They lovingly create gorgeous chili bowls that are sold filled with chili at Market Day downtown (and any unclaimed bowls later in the year). The funds raised from the sale of these bowls are donated to YANA. Their chili bowls warm our hearts – thank you!

Huge YANA love goes out to the Comox Valley ATV Club, who holds an annual ‘First Responders’ Appreciation BBQ and donates funds to YANA at the same time. This fun-loving group of people believe in giving back to their community and showing their appreciation for the Valley’s hard-working emergency workers. We concur, as many of them help our YANA families too. Thank you Comox Valley ATV Club, for your thoughtful donation and collaborative work for all the donations we receive from this!

 

Our former Tin Town neighbour, Stephen Weber, provided haircuts to customers by donation on several Saturdays. We are thrilled that all of the donations went to YANA. If you want to get less shaggy, go see the Tin Town Barber now located in the Comox Mall!

 

 

The staff at Valley Care Medical Clinic are ALL HEART. These medical professionals have a soft spot for kids and their families…They held a book sale through their office and offered their huge donation to YANA and we are eternally grateful! Thank you Valley Care Medical Clinic!

Mark the Gold Guy, of Comox Valley Pawnbrokers Ltd, is a huge hearted YANA champion. This year, as in years past, he donated the grand prize to YANA’s Christmas cracker campaign – a gorgeous diamond ring, valued at $4,695. Mark is worth his weight in gold and then some. Thank you Mark! And we would be remiss if we didn’t thank his associate Tim Haley of Simply Timeless, for his generous donation of the YANA Christmas Cracker diamond appraisal too!

YANA would like to recognize the awesome owner Yiyang Lu of Bosley’s by Pet Valu Courtenay for her charitable donation. Yiyang organized a fundraiser where she donated dollars to YANA for every bag of Performatrin pet food purchased. Woof! Meow! Thank you!

YANA loves that ACS Computer Solutions comes up with their own solutions to help local non-profit organizations. They did a promotion for YANA with every computer that gets dropped off for recycling, they will donate $5 to YANA as well as securely destroy the stored data. They also donate for sharing on FB.

YANA is happy to recognize Playtime Gaming Group (Chances Casino) for their thoughtful donation.  Their gift will help YANA families immensely and we’d love to thank them for choosing us as a recipient for their charitableness!  

A sincere thank you to St. Michael Protestant Chapel for their donation to YANA. There are some real angels in this congregation spreading kindness and love throughout their community. YANA will put your gift to good use!

YANA was given a very generous donation from JJS Consulting Ltd to help us with our mandate of providing financial assistance to families needing to travel for the medical care of their children. We very much appreciate when businesses think of YANA!
