For many years now, Semperviva Yoga Teacher, Bernie Clark has been teaching meditation classes on a donation basis. Upon starting the classes, I asked Bernie to whom the donations should be sent, and his recommendation was RainCity Housing.
This was the first I had heard of RainCity. Since then Semperviva, with the generous support of its students has made considerable monetary donations to RainCity, and has donated hundreds of used yoga mats. This Holiday Season, we are actively collecting funds for RainCity at all our locations.
Watch for our collection boxes, or simply add an extra dollar to any purchase made and it will be forwarded to RainCity.
We are also actively collecting warm socks, and gloves.
