Thank you to the Variety – The Children’s Charity of BC for their recent commitment of $9,000 to support children and their families who must travel to Nanaimo to receive medical care at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. No family should ever face a financial burden so their child can get the medical care they need. Grants from Variety help lower income families cover travel costs so they can focus on supporting their child and not worrying about how to pay the bills.
The grants help cover the costs of accommodation, food, transportation and specialty items such as car seats for premature babies. Their generosity helps many families each year and, to date, Variety has donated over $750,000 to support better healthcare for children living in Central Vancouver Island! We are so very grateful.
