Vancouver Island Steps Up:
Community Relief Fund
This fund was created as a way to bridge the gap for members of our community that are currently being left behind in the rapidly changing situation we all find ourselves in.
One size fits all methods are a good start, but we are not a one size fits all community. Vancouver Island is weathering this storm, but we do not all have the same resources to keep us safe.
This fund is a community-based initiative, born out of the belief that no one should be left behind. We are collecting money to redistribute it based on the individuals who apply – this approach will allow us to optimally meet the needs of our diverse community which can’t be adequately characterized by standardized aid programs.
Community action is one of the most powerful tools we have.
As a community, we are always more than the sum of our parts. As different forms of assistance continue to emerge, there will always be people who fall through the cracks.
We can get through this together without leaving our neighbors behind.
