Thank Yous

This is one of those cases of humanity for the win!  Thank you to our local RCMP.  A missing wallet was found and an reward was offered.  The kind soul who found it didn’t want the money and asked our local RCMP to donate it to a charity instead. We’re grateful they chose YANA!

Maximum-sized thanks goes to Max from the White Whale! This YANA champion raised some serious dollars from the recent Caesar competition at the Shellfish Festival.

The talents of artist Lisa Joan from Isla Life Designs knows no bounds!  She completed her Mama Bear live painting at the last Stag n Hare Market.  All proceeds from that auction of the painting went to YANA .  Big Bear hugs back to you, Lisa Joan!

High fives to Madison for thinking of YANA with her tasty freezie fundraiser!  We know she loves YANA and she knows kids love freezies. Great job!

Sincere thanks for including YANA in Maverick’s 1st birthday party and for marking this very special occasion with a generous donation through the Matching Gift Program at Investors Group.

Way to go Arbutus RV & Marine Sales!  There was a full team behind their YANA fundraising. It was the collective effort of the owner and staff, Keystone RV, and customer donations that made such a difference. Kudos to all of you!

A shout-out to Jillian!  It’s so cool seeing kids helping kids. Jillian is a student from Ecole Puntledge who organized a bake sale for YANA and brought in birthday money, too!

We love our Community Impact volunteers from First Credit Union & Insurance ! Karen B and Paul hit the town for us with Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride posters and Karen M and Tracy helped with some important archiving work. Such a great initiative that YANA benefits from!

A strong showing of YANA love was found at GP Vanier. We appreciate that you got the school mindful of all we do and fundraised for us in a big way. You rock!

Our gratitude to Mrs. Daneliuk’s Grade 6 & 7 class from Valley View Elementary School. These creative students donated the charitable portion of their entrepreneur fair proceeds to YANA and we’re so pleased.
