JCI Helping Hands Program

The JCI Helping Hands program is a year round effort by JCI Vernon & Sun FM to help families in the Vernon area who could use a helping hand in difficult times.

If you know of a family who could use a helping hand please nominate them below to be helped by JCI Vernon and our local sponsors. This is not a contest and is meant for people and businesses in Vernon to help others in need in Vernon. The JCI Helping Hands program is funded by Sun FM and our local sponsors. We are only able to help families with children and you are not allowed to nominate yourself.

If you have any questions regarding nominations, please email us @

On the morning of October 24th, 2014 JCI Vernon Members got to surprise the first Recipient of our JCI Vernon Helping Hands Project and it was awesome!

Our first recipient was Kristina.  She is a single mother of 3 who after taking care of her father who recently lost his battle with cancer, she found out earlier this year that her 17 year old son Christopher’s kidneys were only functioning at 10% and he would need a transplant.  They have been travelling back and forth to Vancouver for treatment and staying at the Ronald McDonald House while they are there.  They received the good news this week that Christopher is now officially on the waiting list for a donor kidney and we couldn’t be happier to help them out.  Please visit ‘Christopher needs a Kidney’ on Facebook to find out more about him and how the family is doing.

Thank You so much to SunFM Vernon as well as the following sponsors we gave Kristina and her family over $1700 in cash, gift cards and other goodies.
