We appreciate the support we have received from Peninsula Co-op. It was nice to have members of the Co-op come to our warehouse so they really understood and got a sense of the work we do in the Community. Thank you for including us on your Christmas Tree as well!

Peninsula Co-op has been a wonderful partner to Big Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria, supporting our mentoring programs across the Capital Regional District and in the Comox Valley. They are community-focused and willing to work with local non-profit organizations to find solutions that keep everyone moving forward. Peninsula Co-op plays an integral role in providing hundreds of young people across Vancouver Island with a much needed adult in their life - someone who can ignite their potential and help them reach their goals. For most of these children, life has been filled with loss, trauma and adversity. Thanks to Peninsula Co-op's financial support, time spent with their mentor now means they have time to laugh again, time to be a kid again, and time to plan for the future.

Please briefly describe the program/event


Our purpose is to promote First Nation values that show honor, respect and appreciation to our K’ómoks First Nation Elders; amongst our K’ómoks community, and within the Comox Valley. As a way of expressing our appreciation, we organize a Christmas gift box event with a dedicated group of community members that wish to bring joy to the K’omoks Elders during the Christmas season. Each box has donations by local artists, businesses and companies who wish to support acknowledging our Elders. We have KFN youth deliver the boxes and sing Christmas carols and our event has been highlighted in a CBC Indigenous article which can be found by Googling K'omoks Elders Appreciation Society.

More than 300 riders put their creativity and bikes to work from August 1-15, 2021 by participating in the chart-your-own-course, virtual version of the Comox Bike Co YANA Ride, an integral, annual fundraiser for the Comox Valley Charity.
Through a summer like no other, even in the midst of holidays, beach days, long-anticipated road trips and travel, the incredible community of YANA supporters still showed up BIG time for our local families needing to travel to access medical treatment for their children and for pregnant mothers.
Making the switch to virtual fundraising events in the last couple of years has been a massive uphill battle for our organization. Knowing that the community-minded business leaders at Peninsula Co-op were in our corner every step of the way has been a huge relief for us. The pandemic has been incredibly hard on businesses everywhere. The fact that Co-Op still found a way to give back to the community we all share and love really shows how proudly they walk the talk!
To the riders, the donors, the sponsors; to the giant-hearted YANA supporters from across the Comox Valley and beyond, to say ‘thank you’ is hardly enough for the $77,000 that, together, we raised to help families. You truly showed every YANA child that even through the darkest of days, they are not alone. https://dosomegood.ca/post/18788

Check out the testimonial Lilaine Galway from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria and Area wrote for Peninsula Co-op! https://dosomegood.ca/business/peninsula-co-op-...
Our sincere thanks to Peninsula Co-op for their generous donation of $500.00 to help keep our programs running during this difficult time with Covid.
This year's graduating high school students have heavily felt the impact of COVID, as traditional get-togethers, activities, and fundraising in preparation for grad celebrations have been reduced or eliminated. However, Cowichan Secondary School recently held a COVID friendly bottle drive and had over 30 grads come out to help make it a huge success. Thanks to Peninsula Co-op for donating gift cards to the Cow High Dry Grad Parent Committee. Student helpers at the bottle drive were entered into an hourly draw to win some of these gas cards. Students were thrilled and will definitely be happy to help out again in the future. Win-Win for all.
We're committed to giving back to the community!
