The directors at Highway to Healing Support Society (H2H) would like to extend a sincere thank you to the community of Oliver and surrounding area for the support of our charity in 2014.
To recap on our first full year of operations, we have assisted 6 different families this year with a child that needed to leave the Okanagan for medical reasons. Our assistance to these families was often more than once to accommodate repeated medical trips, but some were also one-time assistances. H2H provided assistance to these families in four ways: retroactively to cover families’ incurred expenses, immediately to cover emergency expenses, ahead of time in preparation for scheduled repeated needs, and by providing information about other supporting organizations to address needs outside of our scope.
We want to recognize that this would not be possible without the generous support and donations from local organizations such as the Lions and Lioness’ Club, South Okanagan Health Care Auxiliary Society, Catholic Women’s League, ODN, The Trails Foundation, WOW, CFSOS, Youth Cares, The Rotary Club, all of our sponsors with the Michael Burgess in Concert fundraiser, and an overwhelming amount of private donations. This generosity is enabling us to be prepared and to have the funds necessary to be able to immediately help families in need.
We look forward to continuing on this trajectory in 2015, and hope that your year was as great as ours!
Happy holidays from H2H!
