Coastal Community believes in being leaders in building healthy communities by making a meaningful and visible difference in the Island Communities we serve. One of the ways in which we achieve our vision is by offering a variety of programs that grant financial support to local charities whose work benefits Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands.

Fundraising Fridays is an employee donation program where our employees donate $1 each week in support of various charitable groups, and in return, have the option of dressing casual on Fridays. Posters are displayed monthly at each of our locations to inform our membership as to which community groups Coastal Community will be supporting. Funds are accrued over the course of each month, and are donated to the chosen community groups.

Cheers to MacKenna Jardine, the overall winner of the Coastal Community 2020 Scholarship this year. She was awarded a $2,500 scholarship for her project idea and $1,000 to implement it. MacKenna worked extremely hard on her project this summer, meeting all the added challenges due to COVID-19.

MacKenna’s idea focused on Munchkinland. This indoor/outdoor centre in Parksville is part of the BC Strong-Start program, featuring different types of learning through play and a language-enriched space for families to have fun together. In the spring and fall, children spend one day a week outside through Munchkinland’s Outdoor Program.

MacKenna saw that the outside space for this program was in need of an upgrade. She set out to paint Munchkinland’s raised flower boxes and to build a mud kitchen with an irrigation system. MacKenna put in all the hard work with help from her dad and did an amazing job. Congratulations to her for helping to build a healthier community!
