Tuesday, November 29th, 2016 is GivingTuesday - a day dedicated to giving back around the world, across Canada and in our own community. It is an opportunity for charities, companies and individuals to join together and promote support for favourite causes.
Giving Drive Event:
Literacy Alberni Society and Alberni Valley Hospice Society have put together a giving drive event for 2017!
Where: Char’s Landing
(4815 Argyle St, Port Alberni)
When: November 29, 2017
Hospice will be collecting Quality Foods receipts and Canadian Tire money.
Our goal is to engage the public and raise awareness and funds for the many causes in our community.
Char's landing will serve as the hub for donation drop-offs, and we'll have cider, coffee, and tea available for the public to come by, meet people from the various agencies, and find out in what ways they can work with us to address our community's needs.
Five groups will be in attendance this year!
AV Hospice / Ty Watson House - Collecting QF Receipts and Canadian Tire Money.
(Q-Points can also be donated to Hospice/Ty Watson at the till at Quality Foods.)

Pride Society - Will be raising awareness of the option to donate cans to their account at the bottle depot.
