Shaw, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, and the BCHL are committed to supporting local organizations like ours that are working to make our communities better.
The COVID-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented challenges for the non-profit sector as more Canadians are having to rely on our services while resources that our organizations need to continue our essential work in the community are more strained than ever.
Through Brighter Communities powered by Shaw, residents of the Alberni Valley can help raise funds for the West Coast General Hospital Foundation. This text-to-donate initiative is a quick and easy way to show your support for our organization and help build better communities for our children and youth to live, learn, and play.
Shaw, the Bulldogs, and the BCHL invite you to support us by texting AVKIDS to 41010 before May 31 to donate $10. To make your generous contribution go further, Shaw will match your donation, doubling the amount raised for the West Coast General Hospital Foundation. For more information on this initiative, visit bchl.ca/shaw.
Organizations like ours rely on the generosity of our community and we need your support now more than ever to push us towards the $2 million fundraising goal for the WCGH Emergency Department expansion.
“We’re proud to team up with Shaw to support the WCGH Foundation,” said Bulldogs president David Michaud. “The foundation has set a goal of $2 million to for their portion of the Emergency Department expansion at the WCGH, and our club wanted to be involved from the outset. I’ve had numerous discussions with Chris Francey from the foundation and have told him the Bulldogs will be involved to help push them across the finish line.”
The donations and matched contributions raised through this initiative will help ensure that charities like ours that have been strained by COVID-19 will be able to continue supporting the Alberni Valley. A BIG thank you to the Bulldogs for choosing and supporting the WCGH Foundation. Thank you in advance to all our donors, and to Shaw, the BCHL and the Bulldogs for their generous support.
