About

Making A Difference

As a successful local company, we feel strongly about supporting those in need. In addition to making donations to dozens of various charities throughout the year, there are a number of worthy causes that we have been involved with supporting on an ongoing basis. Such as, North Okanagan Hospice Society, Miracle Bucket Society, our local schools, Zimbabwe Project, Kindale, as well as a number of local community members in need of a helping hand. 

Hospice House Day

Monahan Agency is proud to support the North Okanagan Hospice Society by donating all proceeds raised at our annual “Hospice House Day”, which is held at Bookland every year during the downtown Sunshine Festival. Every dollar collected from store sales, a bake sale, and other events goes directly to Hospice. Many of our staff happily volunteer their time each and every year to make this event a success. We are proud to announce that we have raised over $50,000 for our local Hospice House to date. 

Hospice Corner

Bookland has a “corner” dedicated to selling used books by donation to our local North Okanagan Hospice Society. We want to thank our community for supporting this initiative with donations of used books. If you would like to donate your used books, they can be dropped off at Bookland during regular store hours year round.
