Boys and Girls Club has new bus

Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver is the largest licensed childcare provider on Vancouver Island.

When you are out and about in the Comox Valley this summer, you won’t be able to miss the brightly coloured Boys and Girls Club bus.

“It was a long time in the making, but through generous community support we finally made it happen and we couldn’t be happier with the finished product,” says Robin Smart, director human resources and manager, operations for the Comox Valley Club.

“We had amazing community support and would like to thank the following individuals; without their fundraising efforts this wouldn’t have been possible: Canadian Tire, Tim Hortons, Jumpstart and the Rotary Club of Cumberland. In addition we’d also like to thank Steve and the team at ABC Printing for their generosity and workmanship – the children love it!”

Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver is the largest licensed childcare provider on Vancouver Island that specializes in developing children and youth. In the Comox Valley, the club runs before and After School Care Programs at Aspen Park Elementary, and Brooklyn Elementary as well as providing Spring and Summer Day Camps and facilitating parenting programs for local families.
