Joanne Hogan (left), Office and Promotions Administrator, and Elizabeth Newcombe (right), Executive Director of the Vancouver Island Crisis Society, accept a cheque from Tracy Somerville of MNP LLP’s Nanaimo office, whose employees kindly raise funds every year on Jeans Day for local charities. They have chosen to make their generous donation to the Crisis Society in 2019. Thank You! ❤️
Our Crisis services are listed in two regional editions of the Overdose Prevention 2019 Resource Guide, published by Black Press.
The Vancouver Island Crisis Society is included among many sources of support in the important and informative Overdose Prevention 2019 Resource Guide's Central Island edition. Our Crisis Services are advertised on page 25 and are listed on page 29. A Greater Victoria edition, issued in April 2019, also lists our Crisis Services shown on page 35. The guides include articles and features to foster discussion about the risks of drug overdose, inform readers about prevention, and provide step-by-step instructions to save the life of someone who is experiencing an opioid overdose.
