Today we honor the lives of the 215 children found at the Kamloops Residential School in Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation territory, and all others who lost their lives to the residential school system. We mourn with the survivors and families of the innocent children whose voices were silenced.
CIBC Wood Gundy’s Miracle Day donation of $1,418.00 for toys is already being put to good use! We thought everyone would love to see some of the toys recently purchased for the peadiatric department at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. What a special donation for the children!
In celebration of our incredible healthcare team working in the NRGH Intensive Care Unit, Pattie Walker, owner of Pattie’s Party Palace and Marcel Gauthier, owner of Papa John’s Pizza wanted to do something special to give back. Pattie, who shared her appreciation of support for her business over the years and who’s daughter happens to be an ICU nurse in Burnaby, asked her daughter “what should I do?” her daughter replied “food” so Pattie and Marcel connected and together delivered 90 pizzas, sodas and snacks for our entire ICU team to enjoy!
