Stories of our community involvement
We are so thankful for all the people and businesses in our community who do some good. In this challenging time we are not looking for support for Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs but for our children and families. We know that there are many families in our community who normally access our programs who are now out of work and struggling to make ends meet. They do a pretty good job during the best of times but in this unprecedented time, this has posed challenges. If you are looking to do some good we are hoping people/businesses might consider "Adopting a Family" by donating Gift Cards for stores so families can shop for food and supplies to help them manage. If you have questions, please contact Richelle Leckey at 250-878-8306 or rleckey@bgco.ca (Community Engagement Coordinator for Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs). We will work to distribute the cards to the families most in need. #CommunityNeeds
Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs and Kelowna Chevrolet are hosting a community event October 3, 6:30 - 9:30pm: Stronger Community - Where Everyone Belongs
https://dosomegood.ca/event/1846.
Held on August 14, 2019 at the Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna, BC, the 29th Annual CapriCMW Insurance Golf4Kids brought together community members and business partners for a fun-filled day out on the green. With 156 golfers, the tournament featured 18 holes, games, raffles and a live auction, all in support of Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. Thanks to the generosity and commitment of everyone who participated, donated and volunteered, we raised an outstanding total of $65,000!
By far the most heartwarming challenge of the TECHATLON, this week the teams were challenged with doing Acts of Local Love in the community or at local charities. The response was amazing!

The snow is still hanging around, but we are getting excited to start our vegetable gardens in about a month! We will be almost doubling our plot size in Kelowna and will need a lot of help from you amazing volunteers! We have received 5 applications in the past week through Do Some Good, so thank you! Our goal this year is to grow 25,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to feed families in the valley.
We will be supporting many local agencies such as Central Okanagan Community Food Bank, The Salvation Army Central Okanagan, Kelowna's Gospel Mission, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, Karis Support Society, Kelowna Women's Shelter, Freedom's Door, and many more.
We would like to send a huge thank you to two of our amazing and dedicated volunteers, Hiltrud and Julie (center photo) for your years of commitment and hard work! See you all soon in the dirt!
Kelowna Chevrolet is pretty in pink! Wear a pink shirt today to stand by those affected by bullying and practise compassion wherever you go <3

Shout out to the #Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs for putting on the 5th Annual Pink Shirt Day Breakfast! Thank you for all you do!

This just in from United Way Central & South Okanagan/Similkameen: United Way launches program to inspire tech careers for local youth.

The United Way along with several program partners (including Accelerate Okanagan, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, and Okanagan College) are bringing together Okanagan tech companies for some friendly competition and an amazing cause.

Kicking off in March, the Super Mega Ultimate Techathlon is a fun-filled fundraising campaign involving eight simple but ‘ridiculous challenges’ from retro video gaming, to a stock photo contest, and rock paper scissors tournament. While there are prizes and bragging rights on the line, the ultimate goal is to raise funds for disadvantaged youth skill building in our community. All of the proceeds from the Techathlon go to <CODE>anagan, a non-profit program that helps local youth build their tech skills. Read the release:

A few months ago, inspired by our channel partner Interior Savings' amazing initiative $10,000 Local Give, $100 to 100 people, we decided to run a contest for participants to donate an additional $1000 to a charity of their choice from us. Do Some Good user Michele Rule won, giving an additional $1000 to Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. The wonderful folks of the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club generously gave us a tour of the facility and we were able to see first hand the service they provide to youth right here in Kelowna. They are using the money toward Motivational Interview Training for their dedicated staff. The small act of kindness on behalf of Michele has moved them closer to that goal, and the donation has already created a ripple effect with another generous donation of $1000 from an anonymous donor. Together we can help them get the training they need - they are two thirds of the way there! - contact them if you too would like to donate!
In October 2018, Local Give participant Michele Rule used the power of social media to spread a wave of kindness in her community.

Learn how her efforts had a direct and positive impact on the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs AND how Michele's act of local good was selected as the WINNER of a $1000 donation to the charity of her choice offered by Do Some Good - propelling her impact even further!
