What a fantastic day! Our first CNOY- Okotoks 2020 co-hosting with Okotoks Food Bank Association was a great success! We had over 120 amazing folks from our community share in a walk for the hungery, homeless or hurt.
We are incredibly grateful to our volunteers that welcomed everyone, managed routes and rest stops, our registration team that registered our walkers to our food team that made the delicious community meal for all to enjoy.
Thank you to all our amazing teams! You raised over $15,000.00 to date! Thank you for your dedication and your big hearts for thinking of others first, caring for your community and those who are vulnerable. We loved meeting your families and friends as you all gathered to share an evening that was one we at BCO will not forget! And to our donors WOW! Thank you so much for all your support!
To our sponsors and community business leaders that supported our event: Thank you for all you do in our community and your continuous compassion for charity!

We could not end such a wonderful heartfelt morning without joining back together at Hubtown to extend the feeling that filled our hearts today in children receiving gifts from Santa and all the makings for a Christmas feast!

What an amazing crew this evening! 523 essential bags ready to be delivered to the The Mustard Seed and Calgary Drop-In Centre.
Huge thank you to everyone who donated essentials, had fundraisers and volunteered their time!
We love offering a hand up and so does our community!
A wonderful evening celebrating all the volunteers in our BCO family.
The rain and hail couldn’t stop this amazing group from having some fun!

A special thank you goes to all of the volunteers, and Windy Point Soap Making Supplies Inc. who helped make the soap, shampoo, lip balm and lotion used in the bags. Thank you, everyone, for offering a hand up to those in need!
