Thank Yous

Year after year the Comox Fire Fighter Association warm up the tree chipper for folks to dispose of their Christmas trees by donation, with all proceeds going to YANA. Thank you for your continued time and commitment to raising money through this wonderful service and fundraiser! 

Students at Miracle Beach Elementary got baking in support of YANA families.  Mmmmarvelous muffins were sold at the school and the proceeds of the delicious sale were donated to YANA!

16 year old Tarn Blakely had 2 feet of hair and a hope to give back, and she did just that. Tarn not only donated her cut locks to Hair We Share, but she raised money for the big chop to donate to YANA. Thank you for making this monumental moment count by creatively and generously giving back to your community! 

As a YANA volunteer and FortisBC retiree, Joyce applied for this donation from FortisBC as a part of their “Give where you live” community investment program.  Thank you Joyce for your time and efforts in support of YANA families and for applying for this donation for YANA.  For more information about The FortisBC Community Investment and Employee Giving programs, please see

PECSF pledged donations from provincial government employees made during their annual campaign. The funds are made possible due to the dedication of PECSF volunteer provincial employees, who promote the campaign and canvass workers.  YANA would like to thank all BC Public Servants who support YANA families through their PECSF pledges!  More information on how you can support YANA as a BC Public Servant can be found here:

Once again, in celebration of ‘Pi Day’, Jack Boan, recited numbers of Pi to raise money for YANA, and this year exceeding his goal, reciting an incredible 1800 digits!

With another sell-out year and another successful fundraiser, we are grateful to be the lucky recipients of the Truffala Tree Farm fundraiser, where $5 from every Christmas tree purchased was donated back to YANA. Thank you for continued generosity and spirit of giving!

Two is better than one! Jerry Snooke donated the money he raised through his SuperBowl party lottery, and Brian Woodley donated money he was lucky to claim as the winner! Thank you for creatively and generously donating to YANA. 

 A great big thanks to Ryan Williams of Williams and Martin Real Estate Team, who through their 24 to 12 Community Giveback campaign, donates to a different community organization twice a month. Thank you for choosing YANA and for making a difference where you live!
