The Purica Foundation is excited to announce our chosen charity recipient for our 3rd Annual Purica Foundation Gala 2019

The PURICA Foundation is teaming with Cowichan Valley Youth Services to help raise funds and awareness for the construction of the CVYS YOUTH HUB!!!

Purica is a whole foods and natural supplements company based in Duncan BC, serving over 3000 retailers across Canada and have ventured into the United States and overseas.

With so much support from their community, founders Trevor, Marnie, Jason and Anna Watkin wanted to give back in a meaningful way and created the Purica Foundation, a fund held with the Victoria Foundation, designed to generate charitable donations, fundraising initiatives, and promotional support for key community initiatives.

The Purica Foundation fundraising committee is excited to announce that the recipient of its donation this year will be the Cowichan Valley Youth Services.

Imagine Building A Youth Center That Creates:

  • A safe place for youth to gather and come for support!
  • An accessible building where a coordinated spectrum of service providers can share space, collaborate and offer single point of access and wrap around services for children, youth and families.
  • Greater financial strength, efficiency, infrastructure cost control and sustainability for CVYS with room to grow as the Cowichan Community Center old pool lobby, viewing area and changerooms will be transformed into the updated and fully functioning Youth Hub!
  • Reduce administrative costs and maximize resources.
  • Donations do not go towards operational costs. CVYS has been fully operational for 46 years!

The PURICA Foundation will be continuing to share with you the importance of this HUB and the extraordinary dedication that the team at CVYS provides to our Valley’s youth.

“Invest in our youth for our community’s future”
