Since its inception in 2012, the Auxiliary has donated approximately $189.000.00 to help improve lives of Gabriolans. The Auxiliary’s money comes from the GABE Shop which operates year round; from our seasonal Ice Cream Cart and from other fundraising events throughout the year. Partnering with local non-profits the money helps run various health and wellness programs on the Island.
Through our Meals on Wheels program, volunteer drivers pick up nutritious meals and deliver them to people who are unable to cook for themselves for a variety of reasons. Currently there are about 12 people enrolled in the program but many more may benefit on a regular basis or temporarily while recovering from injury or for other reasons.
The Auxiliary also runs the Drivers to Doctors program using volunteers to transport patients who have no other way to get to and from medical appointments
We are always looking for new volunteers. It is an opportunity to meet new people and have fun while you contribute to many worthy causes on the Island.
