Dr. Briggs Council #4597 Knights of Columbus, presented a $1,000 cheque to Lisa Brown, executive director of the C.V. Pregnancy Care Centre. At this time when many charities are finding their fund-making activities curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic, donations are more welcome than ever. This money will help the Pregnancy Care Centre assist young women make a decision at a difficult time in their lives, and which will not be made any easier by the current health situation.

On behalf of the Comox Valley Bantam T1 Chiefs hockey team (sponsored by Coastal Transportation & Storage), team managers Cori Lally and Trevor Pritoula donated the remainder of their team funds to Mitch at the Comox Valley Food Bank. CVMHA teams receive support year after year from so many businesses and individuals in town, and it’s nice to be able to give back to an organization in need.

The Kiwanis Club of Courtenay was pleased to donate $3200.00 to the Comox Valley Health Care Foundation following the successful Sound of Music Singalong. Colt Long, Executive Director, received the cheque from Louise DeArmond.

The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club donated $600 to Project Watershed as part of its mandate to serve local charitable organizations. The funds will be applied to the ongoing land purchase for Kus-kus-sum. For more information Lion Dennis Flynn is pictured here presenting a cheque to Kathy Haigh, PW director of fundraising, and Brian Storey, PW treasurer outside the Project Watershed office.

The Courtenay Legion recently presented the Comox Valley Health Foundation with a cheque for $20,000. The Legion was going to have it support specific upgrades, however, given everything that is happening right now, they decided to use the funds to support our Foundation’s Area of Greatest Need. “The Legion is one of our longest, largest, and most dedicated donors over the years. They have supported St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, and now the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation for more than 20 years,” said CVHF executive director, Colt Lon. “We were thrilled to hear that the Courtenay Legion are using this extremely generous $20,000 gift to support Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation’s Areas of Greatest Need. Their dedication over the last 20+ years, providing monumental support to healthcare in the Comox Valley has had a profound effect on our community. We truly value, and are proud of the tremendous relationship we have with the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 17, of Courtenay”.
