Current Cause        South Okanagan Children’s Charity

The South Okanagan Children’s Charity has been helping the community since 1975; we are a group of volunteers who want to help our local children and families get the support, equipment and services they need. We operate two distinct funds within the society; the Sunshine Fund and the Miracle Fund.

The Sunshine Fund:
The Sunshine Fun provides assistance to families with children who have medical needs and extra medical expenses (mobility equipment, adaptive communication devices, medications etc). One hundred percent of the money collected is used to help local children and their families.

The Sunshine Fund also helps families with travel subsidies: if a family needs to get their child to the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver for treatment or surgery we will help pay the travel costs. No family should have to stress over money during this time.

The Miracle Fund:
The Miracle Fund raises money for worthwhile community projects in the South Okanagan to benefit children and adolescents. Projects are selected based on their benefit to children and community need.
Some of our projects:
Discovery Park at Skaha Lake:
The South Okanagan’s only natural playground with unique natural elements that enhance opportunities for children to socialize, explore and discover nature in a community park.

Penticton Community Center playground:
An outdoor playground located at the Penticton Community Centre, to provide Bugaboo University (early learning centre), with a fantastic outdoor learning environment. The playspace is also used by families who are visiting the PCC for other activities; choosing to stop by after a swim lesson, before a birthday party, or on their way to a dance class. It’s a safe outdoor playspace for 3-5 year olds, and also a great gathering and social space for parents to meet and connect.

Dale Meadows Playground:
A covered playground in the Dale Meadows Sports Complex in Summerland that allows children to play safely!

Lakawana Park (Children’s Playground):
This bright, attractive, safe facility is for children of all ages. The focal point for fun, exercise and family outings is conveniently located at Power Street and Okanagan Lake Drive.

Riverside Drive Youth Sports Court:
This Sports Court provides a modern multi-use facility for the youth of our area. It allows for basketball games, ball hockey, rollerblading… whatever! Kids have the freedom to organize their own fun, just like the “good ole’ days!” The court is located adjacent to the Skateboard Park.

Keremeos Youth Sports Complex and Playground:
A safe, modern facility for the citizens of Keremeos and area. It offers a focal point for exercise, fun and get togethers. An example of the Miracle Fund providing opportunities throughout the South Okanagan
