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.

Who just turned 95?  Central Builders! And to celebrate they held an Anniversary BBQ celebration, donating all proceeds to YANA.  No wonder this charitable business has been around so long! Much appreciation! 

There are some very generous folks at Boston Pizza Courtenay we’d like to thank.  They have raised money for charity for the past year and designated YANA as the recipient of their funds.  Molte Grazie BP!

Shout out to the Bible study group at the Evangelical Free Church of Canada for their recent donation to YANA.  Your thoughtfulness is so appreciated by YANA and by the Comox Valley families you support! 

A delicious, fun filled thank you to the students at Miracle Beach Elementary for also collecting donations for YANA at their annual baked goods/toys/books sale. Kids helping kids -we love it!

Hey Delilah!  Thank you SO much for donating your Birthday money to YANA.  You have a generous heart. Comox Valley families who are served by YANA thank you too!

Sending huge appreciation to the kind folks at St. Michael’s All Angels Protestant Chapel for donating to YANA on a regular basis.  Your ongoing support means a lot to us!

HUGE thanks to every volunteer who has come to our drop-in Christmas Cracker crafting sessions and group bookings!

The Christmas Crackers are almost complete, so DROP-IN SESSIONS ARE CANCELLED for the remaining dates (November 1, 4, 6 and 8).

Group bookings will continue, however, once this year’s crackers are done, groups will be asked to assist with preparation tasks (measuring, cutting, packaging etc) for next year’s fundraiser.
