Stock the Lockers raises over $35,000
Thanks to you, our generous donors, our fourth annual Stock the Lockers campaign raised just over $35,000 to help vulnerable elementary and secondary students get prepared for the new school year.
For the fourth year in a row, our partner Staples promoted the campaign and raised $15,000 in donations at the checkouts. For the third year, Coastal Community Credit Union branches also accepted donations and ran promotions, raising $6,200 and hosting the wrap-up BBQ on September 5 at the Harbourfront Centre. A heartfelt ‘Thank You’ also goes out to Costco and Curves for their donation of supplies.
Media sponsors Island Radio (102.3 The Wave & 106.9 The Wolf), Nanaimo Daily News, and Nanaimo News Bulletin did a great job spreading the word to the community.
In the past four years, you, our donors have helped raise over $175,000. We lack space to name everyone here, but you know who you are – thank you for making an investment in local students’ future!
Tips for Helping Local Students
For the second year, estheticians and hair technicians at Breze Salon and Day Spa at Country Club Centre are helping to make going back-to-school for vulnerable students a bit brighter with a $1,400 donation the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation (NLSF) Stock the Lockers campaign.
Staff contributed five per cent of their tips on services towards a charity fund. Last year Breze donated $1,000 to Stock the Lockers, and they wanted to give again this year to help local students in need start the school year on the right foot.
Staff members at Breze have been donating their tips for six years and have contributed to a variety of charitable organizations.
On behalf of local students, we thank you for your generosity.
