SHRINER'S IN YOUR COMMUNITY FUND
(Previously called the Norval Mackay Smith Fund)
The "Shriner's in your Community" Fund was originally established as the Noble MacKay Smith Fund in the early 1950's. The fund is used to purchase orthopaedic equipment for children such as specialized wheelchairs, orthopaedic shoes, braces and other specialized equipment. There is an application form and any family can apply by sending a request with a detailed explanation of the reason and cost to the Hospital Chairman at the Cowichan Valley Shrine Club.
(Please go to our Shriners in your Community page under "PHILANTHROPY" for more information)
Funding of the Shriner's in your Community is through donations by the clubs and units and any other voluntary donations. Over 630 children have benefited from this program providing specialized medical equipment to improve the quality of life for children throughout the province.
ALUMINUM PULL TABS
The Cowichan Valley Shrine Club collects Aluminum pull tabs from pop & beer cans. The money raised from collecting aluminum goes towards the funding of the Shriner's in Your Community Fund to purchase orthopaedic equipment for children such as specialized wheelchairs, orthopaedic shoes, braces and other specialized equipment.
The Cowichan Valley Shrine Club would like to thank the many organizations and community members that are making these donations.
