Help us give the gift that keeps on giving: love from the construction industry, in the form of toys! 

Leading up to Christmas, we will be collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys — or cash, if you'd prefer we shop for you — to be distributed to families across Vancouver Island that could use a little help this holiday season.  Donations can be dropped off at VICA Victoria (1075 Alston Street) or VICA Nanaimo (5-1850 Northfield Road) from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM Monday to Friday, until end of day on December 18th.

This initiative complements our grocery card donations to local families in partnership with elementary schools in Victoria and Nanaimo, which is made possible through our Chrismas Luncheon sponsorship, 50/50, auctions, and change challenge. In 2019, we conated $12,500 worth of grocery gift cards.

When we wrapped up our Holiday Toy Drive on December 12, 2018, we had received new, unwrapped toys from over two dozen companies or individuals. Thanks to the generosity of our members and industry partners, we donated over $6,500 worth of toys to The Great Nanaimo Toy Drive, CFAX Santas Anonymous, the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association, and the Parksville Society of Organized Services.
