DICES received funding from the Comox Valley Community Foundation through the COVID-19 Emergency Response Grants Round Two, which helped finance our School hot lunches in 2020-21. Additionally, DICES is grateful to have received the 2020-21 Community Enrichment Grant which allowed us to cover rental fees of community spaces, while the Denman School was not available for many of our programs during this last challenging year of pandemic.


Thank the Denman Island General Store and Post Office for their ongoing support of our Parent and Tot, Teen Night and Christmas Hamper Program!
