Community Assistance Program

C.A.P. has been supporting residents in the Central Okanagan since 1977, providing material support at no cost to thousands experiencing financial distress. In addition, the program offers work exchange opportunities to those who wish to volunteer their expertise in exchange or talent in exchange for other items they'd like to acquire from the thrift store.
