Village Foods Market has granted $5,000 in their 2017 Community Card Program to the Commons for upgrades to the West Parking lot. A HUGE thank you to VFM for this grant, and to our Commons Grant Writing Team for completing the successful application.
BUT, these monies only come in as community members use their grocery cards. Please obtain or reload a VFM Community card. When we pre-load, 5% of our purchases come to the Commons, a true win-win.
Thanks again to both Village Foods and everyone with a Commons-designated Community grocery card.
The Gabriola Commons has a membership at the Mid Island Co-op. You can contribute to the Commons by using the Commons Co-op Member Number 637512 when making purchases.
The Gabriola Commons Foundation sincerely thanks the following agencies who have provided valuable grants and support: Coastal Community Credit Union Spirit Fund, Nanaimo Community Foundation, Bullfrog Power, Wal-Mart Evergreen Green Grant, the Innovative Community Development Award from the Canadian Cancer Society's Community Building Strategy, the Gabriola Recreation Society, the Gabriola Lions Club, GabEnergy Society, and the Vancouver Foundation.
