We would like to recognize Comox Valley Potters Club for donating a portion of their pottery sales to YANA.  Thank you for your continued support for YANA families! 


Our appreciation goes out to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 160 and Ladies Auxiliary for choosing YANA to be the recipient of their charitable donation. Comox Valley families who need to travel for the medical treatment of a child or pregnant mother appreciate your support!

Warm thanks to the Catholic Women’s League of Christ the King Parish for your gift of support to YANA.  Your contribution is hugely appreciated by the families that benefit!

Our community is always creating unique ways to give to YANA and we love sharing these stories!  Ian & Kendra sold a piece of art to Jayson Welsh, but instead of accepting payment, they asked Jayson to make a donation to his favourite charity.  He chose YANA and we are so grateful for these folks and others like them, who remind us of how much love our community has to give!

Our creative community was at it again! A huge thanks to Coastal Black and all of those that participated and contributed to the Pumpkin Trebuchet Launch fundraiser for YANA at this years Pumpkin Fest, what a fun way to raise support that is invaluable to so many! 

YANA is truly grateful to have been one of the recipients of Studio IPF’s Giveback Series events.  Thank you Studio IPF for supporting your community and giving back! 

Sincere thanks to the Comox Valley Airport Commission for your donation to YANA and for supporting the families that rely on the generosity of businesses like yours!
