Over the last 12 months, $30,000 has been donated by Unit #5, Vernon, of the Army, Navy & Air Force Veterans in Canada, to local charities.  These charities asked for funding by sending in letters of request with their Society number.

On Sunday, January 8th, Erwin Ruf, President, and Fern Dupont, Treasurer as well as from our Ladies Auxiliary Deb Zukowsky, President, and Jen Pace, Treasurer, presented donations to several local charities/societies.  Accepting those cheques were representatives from the Hospice Society, the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, Crime Stoppers, Teens Matter Too, Community Dental and the Navy League.

More donations will become available throughout the year and will be given out as letters of request are received.
