Inglis School nurturing student learning in the great outdoors


Thank you Twin Valley Co-op for your ongoing support!

Community Need:


Inglis school strives to provide a rich, varied, meaningful way in which to teach students and prepare them for the world. Also, the school hopes to foster a deeper connection between the School and the broader community. By helping Inglis School build and outdoor classroom, Co-op has helped achieve both of those very important goals. The students will be able to learn, while immersed, the lessons that come with gardening, nature, science, and the environment. Community members will have ample opportunities for involvement be it in the planning and building phase of this project to caring for the gardens, to guest teach/speak on subjects not typically taught in the classroom setting. Inglis School is particularly looking forward to this new adventure nurturing students learning in an interesting new way and integrating the wider community on a cariety of levels.

Local Co-op Support:


Co-op has donated $5000 worth of material to our project. It is this local support and voicing of confidence in our idea that has given us a big lift. Co-op has put new energy in our step as we make strides to complete this wonderful project. Specifically, this donation will make it much easier for us to complete this project where a storage shed (for classroom material and gardening tools will be stored) as well as a covered out door classroom structure is required to be built.

How You Can Help:


This project is still in the very early stages and so, much help is still required such as building the outdoor classroom, planting and tending the vegetable garden, establishing a fruit orchard and shelter belts etc. Every little bit of assistance is appreciated and valued. Please contact Inglis School for more information about how you can help or just to share your thoughts and ideas. Thank you!

Keeping virtual and window visits possible during pandemic


Thank you to Peninsula Co-op for their ongoing support.

Community Need:


In the last few months, the public health crisis has changed dramatically, upending our community emotionally, medically, logistically and financially.
The Saanich Peninsula Hospital is truly on the front lines of delivery services at this critical time, working to ensure that our patients receive both the material and emotional support they need. These challenging times remind us how much it means to our health care workers that supporters like Peninsula Co-op are with them. The health and safety of our hospital staff, patients and community is our highest priority.
Co-op's support has provided materials and equipment to help front-line healthcare workers while they provide safe, high-quality care to our patients and community.

Local Co-op Support:


Peninsula Co-op's support is a gift that keeps giving. Thanks to Co-op we were able to support the ever-changing needs in our hospital and community healthcare. There was no budget to cover a pandemic, and Peninsula Co-op's help made a significant difference!
Thank you for being part of this community. Thank you for believing in the mission of the Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation, and in the work that is being done by all our healthcare workers that we have a chance to support.
In times of uncertainty such as this, we see the best of our community emerge. Your support provides peace of mind. It provides materials or equipment to help front-line healthcare workers while they provide safe, high-quality care to our patients . You truly exemplify what it means to be community heroes.
One of the most biggest impact Co-op's support has made possible is virtual or window visits!
"Thanks to your generosity, the Long-Term Care Unit is managing to navigate through this rapidly changing “New World Order”. We have never encountered anything like this in our lifetime, but thanks to you, we have answered every challenge sent our way. From tents for change rooms to tablets/cell phones for socialization and from extra mobile TVs for small group encounters to PPEs for staff safety.
With your support, we have maintained LTC‘s Motto “No Virus Welcome Here!”

How You Can Help:


We now face the challenging task of looking forward at the ever growing wait list of patients which have had to face the sad tale of cancellation of their much needed surgery. These surgeries will have new safety protocols are in place and we will need to help with specialized equipment.

No clinician will ever call himself or herself a hero. They see this as their duty and their calling. Fears don’t stop them from showing up, day after day, to care for patients. And it’s our turn now, more than ever, to show up and support our heroes.

We had no budget to cover this pandemic so we created the Emergency Response Fund. Our goal is $250,000.
If you have not yet, please send a gift to help. Your gift today will provide immediate and essential support especially if there is a second wave of covid-19.

Your caring gift will help provide:
• Tools and support for our healthcare workers
• Housing for clinicians in quarantine
• Increasing Telehealth capabilities
• iPads to help patients stay connected to loved ones
• Refurbishing existing space to meet covid-19 regulation
• New surgical equipment to support covid-19 requirements

Please help the patients, families and healthcare workers and give now. Donate online at sphf.ca or call Brenda at 250-889-6965 and help us reach our goal

Peninsula Co-op matches $150,000 raised by the community for local area hospitals


Community Need:


At Victoria Hospitals Foundation (VHF), we work with our community to enhance accessibility to healthcare on the Island. Because of heroes like Peninsula Co-op, our community has access to leading-edge medical equipment—to expand patient capacity in our local hospitals, and to provide continued education for caregivers at Victoria General Hospital (VGH), Royal Jubilee Hospital (RJH), and Gorge Road Hospital.
When the global pandemic hit, it was crucial that we worked closely with Island Health to plan for the effects that COVID-19 could have on our hospitals. Currently there is an urgent need for greater critical care patient capacity and the ability to monitor complex patients. Peninsula Co-op’s generous matching gift of $150,000 has allowed us to address this issue head on.

Local Co-op Support:


Peninsula Co-op’s incredible support for healthcare on Vancouver Island has paved the way for our community. When they gave the matching gift of $150,000 for hospital foundations across Vancouver Island, including $100,000 for this critical campaign, they inspired so many people to give too. Because of this matching gift—our generous community came together and gave an additional $123,350 knowing that every dollar they gave—Peninsula Co-op would match. A truly admirable incentive for our community!
This matching gift allowed for an impactful head start for It’s Critical. These gifts will be allocated to Royal Jubilee Hospital, one of two COVID-19 primary response sites on the Island. Peninsula Co-op’s support towards It’s Critical will help purchase eight new critical care beds and upgrades to the critical care patient monitoring system, including a new central monitoring station and eight new patient monitors allowing caregivers the ability to see what’s happening with patients at any given moment. The beds in the HAU are specially designed to care for ventilated and other complex patients. With this increased capacity, our hospitals will be better prepared for more patients who require respiratory attention in response to COVID-19.
RJH is better equipped for the unprecedented times brought on by COVID-19 because of Peninsula Co-op’s generosity.


How You Can Help:


Because of Peninsula Co-op’s philanthropic leadership in our community, there was a strong start to It’s Critical. Our community was so inspired by Peninsula Co-op’s leadership that they came together and gave $235,761.00 to be split between hospitals foundations across the island, in only 11 days! Because of generous community leaders like Peninsula Co-op, Victoria Hospitals Foundation has already met $500,000 of the $7 million campaign goal. We are so inspired by our community’s willingness to support healthcare.
There is still a long way to go before the campaign is fulfilled and the HAU is complete. Right now, more than ever, our hospitals require more beds to accommodate more patients. Plans for the HAU have been in motion for over two years. COVID-19 has fast tracked these plans to nearly double critical care capacity. We are asking our community to continue to donate and help increase critical care capacity at RJH.
Philanthropic support for healthcare has never been more crucial than right now. With the global pandemic at the top of mind—we need to increase capacity at RHJ, to ensure that we are prepared for tomorrow.
If community members are interested in getting involved, please visit https://www.victoriahf.ca/ to learn more about our volunteer program, and how to donate to; It’s Critical.
We're committed to giving back to the community!
