At the Christmas Village gala celebration, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island (BGCCVI) unveiled the Family Assistance Fund.
All funds raised through this year’s Christmas Village silent auction will go to support families in the Comox Valley that do not already qualify for assistance from any other means, to ensure they can have their children in quality care.
“The Boys and Girls Clubs operate based on community need,” said Robin Smart, director of the Comox Valley Boys and Girls
“This year has been a tough one for many families. Too often, parents have to make the choice of whether or not to provide childcare and we want to be able to remove that barrier,” Smart added.
“We want to be able to provide parents with the peace of mind knowing that their child is safe, engaged, and supported instead of
walking home to an empty house a TV and video games.”
The BGCCVI looks forward to branching out and providing it throughout our other locations in the coming years.
The BGCCVI is the largest licensed childcare provider on Vancouver Island that specializes in programs that support child and youth development.
In the Comox Valley, we currently offer before- and after-school care programs at Aspen Park Elementary, and Brooklyn Elementary. In addition we provide spring, summer and winter day camps as well as facilitate a number of innovative parenting programs for families within our community.
Outside of the Comox Valley, we also have facilities located in Ladysmith, Chemainus, Nanaimo and Lantzville.
