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.

Led by United Way, CODEanagan is a partnership with Accelerate Okanagan and Okanagan College, with support from Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, that will provide youth with bootcamps and mentorship to inspire them to pursue a career in the tech sector. Bootcamps normally run twice per year with the next launch in December. For more info, visit: http://codeanagan.com

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 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
