Thank Yous

April 22-26 was the first annual YANA Week in the Schools. What a great way to raise awareness about how YANA helps families in School District 71. Many schools held awareness assemblies and fund raising events. We thank our Director, Hugh MacKinnon for an amazing job of organizing this, and attending many of the events.

Christopher & Wendy Smith sure have big hearts and a ton of enthusiasm. They worked with Mark Isfeld School to organize the Drive for Charity event at Isfeld School on April 21st. The proceeds from the Croquet game (what family fun!) and the Silent Auction were donated to YANA Thanks go to the staff and students at the school as well.

Thank you to Pam Tessman who did a little busking with her son – singing ‘Here to Help’. The donated the proceeds from their busking day to YANA – so sweet!

Thanks to Speed Pro for our fancy new “cheque” that we can use for photos of our YANA donors. You guys sure are community minded.

When Carrie Lemke, a voice teacher, and her students performed a musical theater recital they decided to accept donations for YANA From all accounts it was a successful event.

When little Kai’s parents asked him if he’d like to donate some of the money from his piggy bank he said he wanted to give it to YANA and he presented it in a pretty box with a ribbon and a hug.

WOW! The Comox Valley Pool League are an amazing group. They held 50/50 draws throughout their winter season and presented a very nice donation to YANA at their Awards Banquet.

Rrrawsome sells and delivers raw dogfood – thanks for donating 5% of your March sales to help YANA help families. This was awwwesome.

In celebration of little Joni & Freya’s 1st birthday party, a donation was made to YANA Kids helping kids at a very early age!

Thank you to the Comox Valley Realtors who raised some funds for YANA through their Christmas party. You are a bunch of swell folks!
