Thank you for giving back to so many members of the community! If you are looking to spread some extra holiday cheer (there’s still time!) contact your local community organizations to see how you can help!
Helping out those who work so hard to better our communities is something we’ll never stop doing. Through our Community Investment Fund we donated $4000 to KCR Community Resources and COHP so that they can purchase the necessary supplies to run the Food Support Program.

DAY 1 OF SANTA JILLY'S 12 DAYS OF GIVING CAMPAIGN IS LIVE!
Sponsoring local families during the holidays is a family and Team Jilly tradition. This year, Team Jilly is teaming up with The Jilly Box to bring this initiative to life! We have decided to come together to support some local families from extremely vulnerable communities. Our goal is to help support immediate needs, strengthen community members' ability to thrive, and to foster a more inclusive sense of community.
The Jilly Box has generously donated $10,000 to our Sponsored Families campaign!
We Need Your Help to Reach our Goal:
The Jilly Box is the presenting sponsor and has graciously donated $10k.
Cameo donations from October, November and December will go towards the campaign.
Your donation will help support some local families from extremely vulnerable communities.
Special thank you to the following community-centered brands who have generously teamed up with us to support our Sponsored Families Campaign this season: The Jilly Box, Laid Back Snacks, Saje Natural Wellness, Hatley, Clearly, Pomme Salon, Joe Fresh, Haven Sleep Co, Revival by Martin & Co., Nature Bee and MIFA AND CO.

*Please note we are not selecting the families to sponsor, we have entrusted this responsibility to partner organizations who directly serve the community all year round.
Shout out to the organizations that are dedicated to uplifting our communities: Mamas for Mamas KCR Community Resources Central Okanagan Community Food Bank
KCR Community Resources is so proud to partner with Project Literacy Central Okanagan Society on the new Community Care Garden Project that will not only beautify our street but more importantly, it will increase food security for local vulnerable families, offer food literacy support to immigrant and low income families and it allows us to come together as a community.

Here is the morning crew of volunteers (socially distancing and grouped with people from their bubble) getting ready to build 14 planters that will be planted this afternoon with vegetables.
Honoured to help out KCR Community Resources with tea donations for their Family Friend Program which mentors single moms in our community who are in need of connection, support, and resources. We picked Alpina, a herbal blend that pampers the palate with a sweet berry character coming from black currants and blackberries. Thanks to @loewenlifestyle for putting the Mother's Day care baskets together. Happy Mother's Day!
This holiday season, our social committee teamed up with KCR Community Resources to adopt 2 local families in need. Pihl Law Corporation had such fun wrapping gifts and preparing the Christmas hampers! We are grateful for organizations like KCR that support families in our community, especially during the holidays. Thank you for all of your hard work and for inviting us to share holiday cheer with you!
Friday, June 14th is going to be awesome! Start your day with the Family Hub Drive-Thru Breakfast at Pearson Road Elementary - Come & get a delish & healthy breakfast, plus a little special something inside, with all proceeds supporting the HUB!
Today saw the presentation of the remaining installment of a three year grant resulting from a generous legacy bequest to United Way to “do something good in our community”. Knowing the increasing need for services for young children and families in Kelowna and the increasing social issues affecting our most vulnerable--our kids, United Way first invested in 2016 in a three year pilot project to create the one-stop-shop for at-risk families with children 0-12 years old.

The Central Okanagan Family Hub, based out of Pearson Road Elementary in Rutland, opened in June of 2016 and has been operated by KCR Community Resources since then. The Hub has helped over 13,000 visitors to date offering a variety of services and programs often as simple as offering a cup of tea and a friendly ear for a new parent struggling with their young family--not knowing where to turn for both practical and emotional help.
