Chemainus Lodge in the Community
Chemainus Lodge is very active in the community by volunteering, supporting and contributing to various community projects. We have helped organize the local Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign since 2008, we have contributed to a new Xray Machine for the local hospital, we have helped with the Seniors Home, and bursaries for the Chemainus High School, the Highmore-Robinson Bursary. We also do a Veterans Memorial Service in November for our Veterans.
We also give a bursary each year to the Job's Daughters, Bethel 11 Nanaimo and for more information on that please go to the Job's Daughters page under Community.
Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign
Thanks to contributions from donors, volunteers and community partners, The Salvation Army in Canada raised $22 million dollars during its 124th annual Christmas Kettle Campaign with $3.9 million coming from British Columbia alone. Donations to the campaign will remain in the local communities in which they were raised and will help The Salvation Army in the fight against poverty throughout Canada.
