Okanagan Community comes together during the holidays to give Children and Youth at Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs some joy!
The Holiday Season is here and the Okanagan Community’s generosity is shining through. Donations of all kinds have been pouring in to help support children, youth and families who need us the most.
“I don’t remember a year that I have been this busy working with, collecting and distributing donations to our children, youth and families. Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs Admin office has turned into a holiday workshop of collected donations, 50 pairs of New Balance Shoes, Hampers for our Adopt a Family program, as well as clothing, food, toys and hygiene products for Clubs and Youth Centre’s. The magnitude of support is amazing!” Richelle Leckey, Community Engagement Coordinator, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.
Recognizing the organizations and individuals who have come together to make a difference is the least we can do! Thank you Country RV, Mr. Lube, Interior Savings, Kal Tire, KF Aerospace, Karing Friends Foundation, Shaw and Shaw Employees, The Home Depot, Jiffy Lube Kelowna, Caroling for a Cause, Rayburns Marine, BC Tree Fruits, North Okanagan Labour Council, New Balance, Old Navy, and all our Adopt a Family Donors. Support from community members like you, help make our mission at Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs possible.
