We would like to thank everyone for the immense support we have received since the launch of our charity initiative. We are very excited to announce that our first ever Charity Raffle Draw was a success.
As an organization, we believe that supporting our community is important. That is why we are dedicated to promoting local businesses throughout our charity raffles. Our raffle is only possible thanks to the help of generous local business donors who we are able to connect with community residents. This helps boost a supportive community here in the Okanagan, while raising money for local charities.
Through it's Better Communities Program, Intact Insurance donates to worthy causes nominated by its partners that help make the communities where we live and work safer, healthier and happier. The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs is an organization close to the hearts of all of us at CapriCMW and we're very happy to share that Intact has donated $2,500 to support life-changing programs and experiences for local children and youth in the Okanagan!
RBC Foundation presented a cheque for $40,000 to United Way Southern Interior BC today representing a two year and continued commitment for CODEanagan, a barrier-free tech program for youth. The funding is part of the RBC Future Launch program designed to help youth succeed in the new economy.
Each summer over the past 30 years, CapriCMW has brought together community members and business partners for Golf4Kids Day, a fun-filled day out on the green in support of the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. In light of restrictions on gatherings due to COVID-19, we did it a little differently this August. Instead of hosting a golf tournament, we encouraged everyone to book a tee time at their favourite local golf course for August 12 and make a donation online.
Thanks to all of you who got into the spirit by golfing and making a donation, we are so excited to share that we raised a total of $20,342! https://bit.ly/3gOUn3g
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 email@example.com (Community Engagement Coordinator for Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs). We will work to distribute the cards to the families most in need. #CommunityNeeds
