Our Grandmothers to Grandmothers group draws its support from the entire Oceanside region of Vancouver Island.  Without the involvement and generosity of local businesses, we could scarcely manage our fundraisers. Without the participation of other groups such as those who provide live music, we would not be able to give them such life and sparkle. Without community attendance at our events, we would achieve nothing at all.  Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers is truly interwoven with the whole community.

We give a huge thank you to all of our supporters — sponsors, contributors, and friends.  Below are some of the supporters that we particularly wish to recognize for the part they have played in our success.
