Thank Yous

Marjan Jackson was a YANA Volunteer extraordinaire when she volunteered to do all the work to bring the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir to the Comox Valley. It was a fantastic evening at Mark R. Isfeld School. Thank you so much Marjan. Thanks go as well to the corporate sponsors of the event – Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community, McQueen Construction, Canadian Western Bank and Tim Hortons. It was a great partnership with Mark R. Isfeld School, as well.

The Comox Valley Principals and Vice Principals Association continue to pay back to YANA We know that they get to see first hand the impact of childhood illnesses and injuries on their students and their families. YANA helps all children under the age of 19 living in School District 71 who must leave the Comox Valley for medical treatment elsewhere.

The Courtenay Office of Workers Compensation made a nice donation to YANA through their corporate “Helping Hands” program. It’s so nice that your local donations can be given to a local charity through your gifting program.

Telus, through their “Give Where You Live” Program, approved a grant to Highland Secondary School “to empower and enable youth to be agents of change”. What a great way to give back to kids and families in our community. Thanks Highland and Telus.

We love it when kids choose to donate Birthday Party money to YANA so we can help other kids. Thanks this month to Acacia and Alice who celebrated their birthday in this giving kind of way.

Central Builders held another amazing Ladies’ Night in May. It looked like everyone had a great time, building, learning, eating and winning door prizes. Well done Central Builders.

Finneron Hyundai increased their “likes” on Facebook and made a donation to YANA

Many thanks to Chances for choosing YANA as the recipient of their “found” money.

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.

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.
