The 2017 holiday season was made very special for many individuals and families thanks to the amazing generosity of the people of our community. The staff and Board of Nelson Community Services (NCS) wish to express their sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the many groups and individuals who donated cash, gifts, and food hampers throughout the month of December.
These gifts went directly to our children and families programs, our Cicada Place Youth Program, our Street Outreach Program, and our Aimee Beaulieu Transition House Program. The care and thought put into handmade items, the carefully selected gifts and toys, the over flowing baskets and hampers, plus the incredible amount of gift cards and money all went to families, youth, seniors, and children in our area who, without your donations, would not have had much of a holiday celebration at all.
Throughout the year, NCS provides a range of counseling, support, outreach, and housing support services primarily through funding contracts with the provincial government.
These funds cover the basics of our service provision, but this year we were able to add that extra sparkle to many people’s lives because of your generosity. Know that your gestures — no matter how big or small — mean the world to someone. May your hearts be full and your year ahead be filled with the happiness of sharing and giving. Thank you so much!
