Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SOS is only offering essential services at this time. SOS Thrift Shop is closed until further notice and cannot accept donations until we reopen. SOS Community Services Centres are closed, and volunteer activities are suspended with the exception of a few areas. We are unable to interview new potential volunteers at this time. We are able to continue offering the Meals on Wheels program, Emergency Assistance & Advocacy (by phone) and Seniors Advocacy (by phone). The Counselling Referral program is connecting clients with professional counsellors online. The Homeless Prevention program will continue support for existing clients. All Child, Youth & Family programs are suspended. For more information or for assistance, call 250-248-2093. Monetary donations are critical at this time to keep our services available. If you are able, please consider donating. We wish you good health and hope to reconnect again soon.

SOS Spring 2020 Newsletter

SOS is committed to supporting seniors. Although the Thrift Shop and SOS Community Services Centres are closed to the public, we are here to help. Please see the message above for essential services offered.
Please click here or on the image below to view our Seniors-themed Spring Newsletter. Once the COVID-19 pandemic diminishes, we look forward to re-starting all of our programs for seniors, as well as for children, youth and families.
Without income from our Thrift Shop, we are limited in our ability to maintain service levels. If you are able, please consider donating online or over the phone. Please click here to make a donation. Your support is critical at this time.
Thank you for your support of SOS and our community, and we hope you enjoy reading our Spring Newsletter.
