How to get involved in Vernon & Area this Holiday Season

This time of year inspires many of us to think about our neighbours and community. 


I recently participated in the Realtor's Food Drive for the Salvation Army Food Bank and we are getting ready to give our annual contribution to the Vernon Family Resource Centre. These opportunities are always enjoyable for me, and it made me wonder what other initiatives are taking place in our community this season. What I found filled me with great cheer!


The Vernon Morning Star website currently has many articles that offer ideas on different organizations in Vernon and surrounding areas that cover all areas and communities. If you are looking for ways to give this holiday, (or any time of the year!) why not check out some of these local initiatives:


1. Armstrong Spallumcheen Refugee Project

This project is here to help with the current needs of refugees arriving from Syria.

2. Venture Training

Venture Training is an organization that provides services and programs for people with developmental disabilities.


3. The Teen Junction

One of the more established organizations in our community, the Teen Junction supports at risk youth.

4. Any of the organizations of the JCI Alternative Gift Fair

This whole fair is an excellent idea! Give a "gift certificate" to a charity of your choice.

5. Fulton School Food Drive

This is something you can act on right away! They are collecting donations tomorrow afternoon.

6. Christmas Miracle at Anderson Village

If you don't have a chance to bring food donations to Fulton, the business on Anderson Way are collecting for the same cause.


7. Upper Room Mission

The Upper Room Mission is a corner stone in our community and is always a great place to offer your support.

All of these projects are worthy causes where even a little can go a long way. Also, giving a donation in the name of someone else is a great way to include others in these amazing community initiatives.
