Who doesn’t like dressing casual at work? At Coastal Community Credit Union, staff are given the opportunity to relax a little, by putting on those comfy jeans and donating to a community charity at the same time. We’d like to give a giant shout out to to CCCU for an awesome donation from their staff. Thank you so much!

Another personal best for Jack on his Pi Day-1,400 digits of the mathematical constant!!! Jack Boan rhymed off close to 400 more numbers from memory beating his 2018 record! We heart that Jack takes this opportunity to fundraise for YANA while doing it.

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.
