Couple donates proceeds of homemade preserves to BC Children’s Hospital
For more than a third of their lives, Monica and Tom Brennan of West Vancouver have been helping kids in one of the sweetest ways: making jam. The couple started selling homemade preserves and donating proceeds after their granddaughter, Emily, had several operations at BC Children’s in her early years.
“We started selling jams, marmalades and chutneys because we wanted to give back for all the help the doctors and staff gave to our family,” Monica said.
As word got out, the popularity of the Brennan’s jam quickly spread—enabling them to donate more and more each year. To date, they’ve raised over $20,000 for BC Children’s Hospital.
