Attended Donation Station Opening
On March 9, 2019, AiMHi opened our attended donation station at 1000 1st Ave. This was in response to ongoing concerns with the large outdoor donation bins used for the collection of gently used products. These had unfortunately resulted in some tragic situations in British Columbia since being implemented with a couple of re-designs along the way that had not been successful to date. AiMHi worked diligently on a resolution and has taken the lead on new strategies to ensure these tragic events do not happen to anyone else. We are committed and made it a priority to keep the public safe. This donation station in conjunction with new internal collection bins in business throughout the community will provide opportunities for the community to support AiMHi in their fundraising efforts and partnership with Value Village.
For the past two years AiMHi has participated in the local” Big Squeeze” event that raises money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. In 2016 we took home the top prize for “Best Flavored Lemonade” , in 2017 we won the trophy for “Top fund raiser”. This year we joined many other community members on August 1st, to fund raise, share some laughs, good lemonade and help out this wonderful organization. We came away with the “Top fund raiser” trophy for the second year. Congratulations AiMHi for all your hard work and to Big Brothers and Sisters who will receive all the hard earned money and support from today city wide event.

British Columbia Wild Fire Evacuation
In 2017 British Columbia saw many wild fires that effected many near by communities. Williams Lake was one of these communities. The Williams Lake Association for Community Living need to leave their homes so AiMHi opened our doors and gave them a home away from home till they were able to return. During their extended stay new friendships were made with the self advocates and their dedicated staff. We were humbled by their gratitude and the amazing gift they gave us as a thank you.
