We support the most vulnerable student population in Nanaimo. Our purpose is to improve the life chances of every student. We hope to use these funds to give students warm clothing for the winter months. In the past we have found that if students are able to receive clothing with our school logo on it, they feel like they belong to our school family. When they feel like they belong to a family, they commit to the family and are safe. 

Through our school based team, we will determine what students require warm clothing for the cold months. Our team will find a way to provide this to each student without any shame attached.  Your generosity from last year's grant helped get kids off the street and across the graduation stage. We will be forever grateful.


This project is one of many received by The Vancouver Sun Children's Fund for our 2020/21 Adopt-a-School campaign.

Since the day our first Adopt-a-School news story was published in the fall of 2011, generous Vancouver Sun readers have helped us raise more than $6 million to improve the lives of B.C.’s neediest school children.

The money you donate helps teachers and school staff who are dealing with children suffering from the effects of poverty and enables them to provide breakfast or lunch, food at weekends, other necessities (like warm clothing) and educational experiences. We are grateful for your support, and for the opportunity to make a difference.

(100 per cent of donated funds are used for grants.  Admin & expenses are either supported by the Vancouver Sun newspaper or paid out of interest on investments.)
