Shaw, Cents Partner With Nicola Family Therapy

Shaw, the Merritt Centennials, and the BCHL are committed to supporting local organizations that are working to make our communities better.

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented challenges for the non-profit sector as more Canadians are having to rely on their services while resources that their organizations need to continue their essential work in the community are more strained than ever.

Through Brighter Communities powered by Shaw, Cents fans and residents of Merritt can help raise funds for Nicola Family Therapy. This text-to-donate initiative is a quick and easy way to show your support for Nicola Family Therapy and help build better communities for our children and youth to live, learn and play.

Shaw, the Centennials, and the BCHL invite you to support Nicola Family Therapy by texting MERKIDS to 41010 before May 31 to donate $10. To make your generous contribution go further, Shaw will match your donation, doubling the amount raised to Nicola Family Therapy. For more information on this initiative, visit

Organizations like Nicola Family Therapy rely on the generosity of our community and they need your support now more than ever as demand for their services continues to increase. Nicola Family Therapy has a current fundraiser towards Men’s Mental Health that will aid our youth in many avenues, but to keep it simple and brief – A Healthy Family creates healthy youth! Nicola Family Therapy can assure you that if you donate to children and youth they will be certain to allocate funds to the children of our community either by paying for counselling not covered by our Government contract or by providing supplies to aid children to better Mental health.

The donations and matched contributions raised through this initiative will help ensure that charities like Nicola Family Therapy that have been strained by COVID-19 will be able to continue supporting Merritt.
