CEO Message – April 2024

March was busy month with all our community engagement and its going to be ramping up as we move more through spring.  We have our next home show at the Kelowna Curling Club on the 21st and 22nd April and the following weekend we are venturing north to Salmon Arm for our first home show there.  We are looking for volunteer help for both shows and anyone interested can contact Courtney Clark, Volunteer Coordinator for details.

The Heart of the Home Dream Kitchen auction has had a flurry of activity in the final days, we will be announcing the winner on the 18th April at a Chamber event being held at Norelco Cabinets.  We are extremely grateful for this opportunity to work with the amazing team at Norelco and raise funds for our build program.

Have you seen the new ReStore commercial on TV?  We have partnered with Global to highlight the treasures that can be found at our ReStores. If you’re like me, a visit to the ReStores means you leave with many items you didn’t know you needed at a fraction of the price of new!

The online 50/50 pot is already larger than it was at the same time in 2023.  We are attending many events which are sure to see the total grow.  Our goal is to give away more money than ever this year.  Tickets can be purchased HERE.

The Lake Country build is moving along well, with floors now being installed.  We’ve already had a number of volunteers that have participated in teams builds and are expecting more in the coming weeks.  If you would like to be a part of this rewarding experience, please contact Danielle Smith, Director of Resource Development for more information.
