Children in the Community
The Kiwanis Club of Courtenay is very involved in supporting the children in their local community. This "Kiwanis" year, the Club has donated a whopping $30,000 to the many projects it supports.
- full funding for the annual Operation Highjump (track & field events day for developmentally challenged)
- operation of the popular Zucchini Races at the Comox Valley Exhibition
- bursaries to graduating high school students to help further their education
- school supplies for needy children in Comox Valley elementary schools
- pediatric equipment for the hospital
- and so on .....
The Club raises funds through projects and by receiving gaming grants from the BC Lottery Commission.
