We are delighted to announce that, with the very generous support of our wonderful community, and the many kind donations from far and wide, we are now within $30,000 of purchasing the Irvines Landing property by the 29th of September, 2017. In the true spirit of Pender Harbour, we are now appealing to anyone who may have considered donating to the PODS cause to please reach deep into your pockets to help us meet this amazing milestone in our history.

If ever there was a time that we needed a demonstration of your generosity, THE TIME IS NOW!
