Each year, UBCO JDC West participates in a campaign called Chillin’ for Charity. Usually, this event involves donations to “dunk” our delegates in a dunk tank with all proceeds going to Shinerama. Shinerama is Canada’s largest post-secondary fundraiser in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. However, this year, due to COVID-19 constraints, we ran a virtual collection platform.

UBCO JDC West’s Chillin’ for Charity event took place from 19 Oct 2020 to 26 Oct 2020 and concluded with a total amount raised of $1,975 for Shinerama! In addition, UBCO JDC West donated ice cream treats to The Highlands Retirement Residence and a $150 gift card to the Springvalley Elementary School's breakfast program. Special thanks to Dairy Queen Grill and Chill (Airport Village Kelowna) for sponsoring the ice cream treats and Safeway (Downtown Kelowna) for sponsoring the gift card!

We wanted to extend our gratitude to everyone who took part in our Chillin’ for Charity fundraiser. To everyone who participated in this event one way or another, thank you very much for your support!
