Cowichan Seniors Community Foundation On-line Auction

October 7 @ 8:00 am - October 11 @ 5:00 pm

The Cowichan Seniors Community Foundation is a registered charity that advocates programs and services to facilitate seniors ‘ageing in place’ within the Cowichan Region. The Foundation also partners with local government, community organisations, service clubs, businesses and interested individual supporters to be a general resource and to deliver services to seniors across the Region. Some of our programs and services are listed below. Our 6th Annual Online Auction will be held from October 7 to 11, 2019.

The Supported Transportation Program offers rides to and from medical appointments for seniors who no longer drive. In 2018, 1,800 rides were provided to and from medical appointments with volunteers driving over 26,000 kilometers. The Meals on Wheels program delivered over 4,000 meals in the Duncan area last year. The Foundation also produces a hard-copy Seniors Resource Directory every two years. This resource lists organisations and contacts for services available to seniors throughout the region. This directory is also available on-line on the CSCF website and is continually updated. Five Seniors Wellness Expos were held throughout the Cowichan Region and five more will be hosted by June 2020. The goal is to engage seniors in the communities where they live to come together to learn more about services, programming and initiatives aimed at maintaining and/or improving their Quality of Life.

The auction will be held from October 7 to 11, 2019 and will be hosted on Facebook’s “32Auctions” platform. Bidders are notified and updated immediately on the status of their bid(s) to encourage ongoing participation. Photos, descriptions and donor information of items are listed there, as well as on our website and through our social media platforms. Funds raised from the auction will be matched through our partnership with the Victoria Foundation for the Cowichan Seniors Smart and Caring Fund. In 2018, over $1,600 was raised to support the Foundation’s work with bids coming from all over Vancouver Island. If you have any questions, please call 250 715-6481 or e-mail cscfoundation@shaw.ca.
