Thank you, Campbell River
As the Campbell River community responded to the many challenges of COVID-19, we were compelled to re-examine how we could support our most vulnerable. We developed a strategy that resulted in the formation of a Task Force, and an appeal to great Campbell River community for donor funds that would ultimately assist those impacted by this unforeseen pandemic.
Thanks to the caring generosity of Campbell River residents, businesses, service clubs, First Nations leaders, and local governments, we raised at total of $218,602 and were able to support twenty non-profits in 2020 and 2021 as they worked to support our more vulnerable population.
In May 2022, the Covid Relief Fund was dissolved after residual funds were granted out to four final grantees.
To date, we have given $232,877 to help our not-for-profits help others during this difficult time.
While this fund is now dissolved, the Campbell River Community Foundation continues to be proud of all the community members who came together and rallied to ensure resilience in our community.
