Okanagan receives $500K for daycare on Vernon campus


Okanagan College has received additional support for its new Vernon campus daycare in the form of a $500K donation from former Okanagan instructor Lloyd Davies and his wife, Janet Armstrong. As an instructor, Davies saw students with childcare challenges struggling to complete assignments, labs, and exams, and wanted to help improve the situation through his donation. The $500K gift from Davies and Armstrong opened the Sunflower Daycare Centre campaign, which will raise the remaining $750K needed to equip the facility with furnishings, supplies, and an outdoor space so that it can open in September 2024. Davies and Armstrong and other community donors will also be matching donations to the campaign up to a total of $80K.
