We can't thank you all enough!! We wrapped up this year's Winter Warm Up Clothing Drive and it was a huge success! Nanaimo Unitarian Shelter and the Nanaimo Youth Services Association are going to put all these warm clothes to good use for those in need.
Monetary donations were also generously received for the Loaves & Fishes Community Food Bank. The total received was $1970 which in the hands of Nanaimo Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank is worth approximately $10,000!
Thank you SO MUCH to all who donated!

School teachers around the province and beyond have been working to shift over to remote learning. We appreciate the hard work and care that goes into it all.
Appreciation goes out to all the parents stepping up during COVID-19 to help their children with their daily lessons and taking time to learn new things through play, baking, adventures, arts & crafts, learning new games and more.

It is unsure times for many and we want to help pass on as many resources as possible. If you have been laid off or are unable to work due to COVID-19 and require financial assistance there are ways that the Canadian Governement is trying to help.
If you have additional resources that can help our local community, please feel free to let us know. There is no better time to show love, support and compassion. We hope you are well, spending time with your families
