One of our favorite times of the year, adopting a family (or two) to ensure they have gifts under their tree on Christmas morning. Our team members go out and source out some very special gifts for the family members. We gather and wrap them all for NOYFSS to pick up and distribute to the families, making it an extra special year for them.

Canadians were heartbroken to hear the news of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash in April 2018. Logan Boulet, a Humboldt Broncos defenceman, succumbed to his injuries. Boulet’s parents offered to donate their son’s organs so that six lives could live on. They did this because Logan told his parents he was registering as an organ donor because he had been inspired by a coach who had passed away, was an organ donor and as a result, he saved six lives.
We encourage you to:
- Tell Your Friends
- Be Inspired

Paul Nixon’s legacy lives on through his community impact.
A big community presence with an even bigger heart. VERNON, BC, March 22, 2021 – For all of us living in the North Okanagan, we can easily recognize the landmark that is the law offices of Nixon Wenger on 30th Avenue. Paul Nixon, was instrumental in planning and constructing those offices. Sadly, Paul passed away in November 2020, he had a big community presence and an even bigger heart. Over the years, Paul had a tremendous impact on the North Okanagan, not only through his law career but also through his dedication and support to the charitable sector. In 1975, Paul, along with other members of the Vernon Rotary Club saw the benefit of a charitable society that focused on local community needs. They fundraised that first $1,000 donation from a like-minded colleague and started what is essentially the “community savings account”. This became the beginning of the Community Foundation North Okanagan, originally named the Vernon Benevolent Society.
Paul was a founder, created the first constitution, and remained a board member for decades. “It’s impressive that forty-six years ago, Paul and the other Community Foundation founders had the foresight to build a renewable source of funding to support the valuable charitable work in our region.” Leanne Hammond, Executive Director, Community Foundation North Okanagan, says as she reflects on the many charitable collaborations that Paul was part of over the years. Paul Nixon was loved and respected by all who knew him. Colleagues, clients, friends, neighbours, and most of all his family were enriched by his warm heart and reliable wisdom. He had a genuine interest in the North Okanagan lifestyle. From boating, swimming, and snowmobiling with his children and grandchildren to tending the fields of his ginseng farm, Paul’s greatest pleasures in life were the moments he spent with those closest to him. Paul’s deep sense of integrity and belief in community meant that he helped many organizations throughout his lifetime. He actively supported a variety of capital projects for charitable organizations and was especially passionate about supporting, the Boys and Girls Club, Community Futures, Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, Community Foundation North Okanagan, North Okanagan Community Life Society, and Kalamalka Rotary Club. To continue Paul’s commitment to making a difference in our community, his family, friends, and colleagues have established the Paul Nixon Legacy Fund, at the Community Foundation North Okanagan. We invite you to contribute to this fund created to provide grants that support the community and organizations that were close to Paul’s heart.
