So many people to thank, so little space!  Huge gratitude to Driftwood Mall, Fresh Life Design, Bentall Kennedy, Adele, Lynda and ALL our amazing community friends who contributed to the Annual Christmas Tree Fundraiser.  This fun and festive tradition, hosted by the Driftwood Mall, has been benefiting YANA for almost 2 decades. Local businesses, families, and individuals create uniquely themed Christmas trees, complete with gifts beneath them, for auction.  This fundraiser embodies the generous Christmas spirit of our many charitable YANA supporters.

Not only does our local RCMP detachment work hard at keeping our community safe, they also have very large hearts!  We’d like to thank the Comox Valley RCMP and staff for their generous donation.

Thank you to Katrina Kaboly of Century 21 Arbutus Realty for her recent donation.  Katrina donates 5% of her personal sales commission to non-profits and we’re so grateful that YANA is one of her charities of choice.  Community partners such as Katrina enable us to help local Comox Valley families!

YANA would like to extend our gratitude to Viktor & Ursula Davare of Woodform Interiors.  They used their creative expertise to craft gorgeous wood slab cutting boards and sold them by donation.  We never cease to be amazed by our community’s wonderful fundraising ideas!

We’d like to thank one of our biggest supporters:  Kieran from Tin Town Cafe. This enterprising young man baked some delicious homemade cookies and sold them by donation to YANA during the Christmas Market.  We love to see thoughtful kids helping their community!

Huge shout-out to Chinook Local 630 Society for their generous contribution!  YANA appreciates organizations that value the need to keep families together in times of crisis.  Thank you!

Appreciation goes out to Orion Facilitated Planning for their recent donation to YANA.  We are so grateful for your ongoing support of our mission to provide assistance to families who must travel for the medical treatment of their children.  Thank you so much! 

Who wouldn’t want a gorgeous hand-made Christmas Tree skirt?  The G4S Canada manager created such an item and raffled it off to YQQ staff, volunteers and travellers with proceeds going to YANA.  We’re honoured and touched when community members give their talents and time to help support our organization, thank you!

The big-hearted members of the Filipino Canadian Community recently held a raffle at their Christmas party and donated all the proceeds to YANA.  Salamat – Napakabuti ninyo! We appreciate your kindness!

We are incredibly grateful to the staff at Tayco Paving for their recent contribution, collected at their Christmas Party.  Your donation will support local families, thank you!
