Thank you, Campbell River
As the Campbell River community responded to the many challenges of COVID-19, we were compelled to re-examine how we could support our most vulnerable. We developed a strategy that resulted in the formation of a Task Force, and an appeal to great Campbell River community for donor funds that would ultimately assist those impacted by this unforeseen pandemic.
Thanks to the caring generosity of Campbell River residents, businesses, service clubs, First Nations leaders, and local governments; we raised at total of $218,102 and were able to support twenty-five non-profits as they work to support our more vulnerable population.
In addition, we received a total of $125,000 from the Federal Government through Community Foundations of Canada and carefully distributed the funds to thirty-two applicants.
To date, we have given $232,877 to help our not-for-profits help others during this difficult time.
