The Kelowna Taiwanese Cultural Society (KTCS) who is hosting and partnering with Tranq Sleep Care to raise funds for the Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) Foundation . We are excited to announce the first Okanagan Wellness & Asian Fair on Saturday May 28, 2022, to be held at Grizzli Winery.

May is Asian Heritage Month, which offers us an opportunity to learn more about Taiwanese Canadian history. With the support of our Taiwanese community participating, we will explore and experience Taiwanese cuisine, marketplace, art, and health practices. There will be family-friendly interactive booths, fun stations (inflatables) and a silent auction.

Sleep wellness presentations will be offered for free, however seating is limited, so registration is highly recommended. We will have renowned physicians and experts that will be speaking on pediatric and adolescent sleep, sports and concussion and sleep, as well as the effects of the increasingly popular cannabis on our sleep.

The United Way Southern Interior BC serves the communities of the Okanagan, Columbia, Shuswap, and Similkameen regions. Each year, over 85,000 residents in this region benefit directly from United Way investments with 73 local charities, which focus on supporting kids, moving people from poverty to possibility and b and building strong, healthy communities. BCAA estimates as many as five percent – roughly 23,000 – of children in British Columbia don’t use an approved child car seat when travellin by car, despite the clear safety advantages to using one. The unfortunate reality is that some kids go unprotected because their families simply cannot afford the expense of a new car seat.

The Child Safety Initiative is a partnership powered by the Paul Docksteader Foundation, United Way Southern Interior BC, Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) Foundation, and Central Okanagan Foundation, which provides new car seats to families in financial need. The car seats are distributed to families throughout the Southern Interior of BC, thanks to a network of community partners who provide social services in these regions.

A 20' x 8' x 8.5' container allowed the United Way to securely stow a large delivery of 172 children's car seats while they prepared for distribution to 29 local charities throughout the Okanagan. This campaign was considered a huge success by the organizers!

The United Way Child Safety Initiative will see a significant expansion this year thanks to its partners and donors, which this year includes the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF).

Now, families in need will receive infant car seats as well as baby care packages that include essential items like diapers, wipes and formula. In addition, several local charities will receive grants to support children and youth wellness programs. The additional funding and care packages mean children, youth and families will receive even more vital support this year.

Partners in the Child Safety Initiative, Paul Docksteader Foundation, Central Okanagan Foundation , Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) Foundation , and United Way Southern Interior BC , will provide 172 car seats and 39 baby care packages delivered to 29 agencies in the Southern Interior this week.

“The well-being of children and youth is critical to the social fabric of our communities,” said Kahir Lalji, executive director of United Way Southern Interior BC.

“Ensuring the safety, holistic care and comfort, and the equitable access to resources for the youngest members of our communities are essential to addressing unignorable issues facing children and youth in our region."

“The pandemic has further deepened the need families are facing and we are grateful to all our partners for coming together to expand this much-needed program. We know the need is more dire than ever and we will continue to work hand in hand with all our neighbours to support the delivery of essential non-medical social and community supports to those who need it the most.”

Thanks to the addition of the federal government ECSF grants, 13 local charities will receive additional investments to apply towards children and youth programs as they adapt to address COVID-19 protocols and ultimately enable them to sustain and deliver programs safely. A total of $170,000 in grants, car seats and care packages will be distributed.
