Giving back to the arts community is important to all of us at Opus. Now in its 16th year, the Opus Donations Drive raises much needed funds for local organizations, matching your cash donations with Opus gift cards of equal value, to assist each group’s programs.

We would love for you to continue your generous support this year by making a donation on your next visit your local Opus store. Let’s continue to share our gift with the community!

Visit your local store and support their charity by donating this year!

Downtown Vancouver is supporting the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation Creative Arts Program.

The program offers one-to-one experiences for patients who have extended or repeated hospital stays. The use of creative arts in pediatric health care is one way to help minimize the stress and anxiety related to health care experiences. It provides opportunities for self-expression as well as control, choices and distraction from pain and discomfort.

Granville Island is supporting the Coast Mental Health Foundation’s Art Resources Program.

Coast Mental Health provides services to assist people recovering from serious mental illnesses. Their Art Program, supported by a newly renovated and heavily used Art Room, provides an atmosphere where clients feel valued. This results in an invaluable experience for those who need a calm and constructive space to explore creativity and practice self expression, and contributes to their healing process.

Kelowna is supporting the Central Okanagan Hospice Association.

Committed to community outreach and to meeting the needs of the terminally ill and their families by providing compassionate care and supportive assistance, HeArt Cart volunteers bring the creative process to hospice patients and families and allow them to experiment with and use art as a mechanism for relaxation, expression and creativity.

Langley is supporting Bridge Art Studio.

The Langley Association for Community Living is dedicated to the delivery of quality services to children with special needs, adults with developmental disabilities, and their families. Through Bridge Art Studio, individuals develop their artistic skills and learn how to express themselves creatively. Members showcase their works at local art exhibitions on a regular basis and participate in community events and projects.

North Vancouver is supporting Artists for Kids.

Established in 1989 through a generous partnership among some of Canada’s finest artists and the North Vancouver School District, its mission is to build an art education legacy for the children of BC. Each year Artists For Kids provides a variety of art enrichment program opportunities for thousands of students of all ages including the popular Paradise Valley Summer School of Visual Art.
