Thank Yous

Thank you to all cyclists, volunteers, sponsors and donors that contributed to the Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride. It was an amazing example of people coming together for the joy of riding and the joy of helping! Cyclist, Kelly Rusk, had some special pledges, one from the Firefighters Association and one from Mirren Everitt , who put all of his allowance toward pledging Kelly’s ride.

Courtenay Medical Associates and staff had a jeans day and donated the proceeds to YANA Hooray!

Nrichmedia has an ongoing giving program. For every client whose project is priced $1,000 or more, they donate 3% to a charity chosen by the client. YANA is frequently the recipient. Fantastic!

Once again, Nautical Days provided an opportunity for YANA to collect donations on the final evening of the festivities at Marina Park. Thank you for this opportunity and special acknowledgement to the volunteers who collected money and the generous people who made donations.

Thank you to The Potter’s Place for their Chili Bowl Fundraiser which took place during Market Days this summer. The bowls and the chili were made with love! What a great way to add to your pottery collection each year and help local families with sick kids at the same time.

The B.C. Government does payroll deductions for donations by provincial employees. Many thanks to those employees who choose YANA to receive their donations.

Canadian Western Bank held a branch fundraiser with proceeds to YANA We appreciate your ongoing support.

The Parks Department from the Town of Comox has teamed up with YANA to turn cans and bottles into help for families. The staff collect the containers from the bins around town and then one of our hardest working volunteers does all the sorting at the Comox Return-It Centre. Thank you to 8-year-old Chris Parkinson for this great effort and to his mom, Carol-Anne, for being at his side.

YANA tins from various stores, restaurants and pubs around the Valley bring in a constant flow of donations. Thanks to the businesses and the donors. Every penny counts!

Once again the Old English Car Show at Filberg Park had donations for YANA at their entrances. Our volunteers were very impressed with the generosity of those who attended. Thanks for including us in the event and contributing significantly to our cause.
