Callahan Property Group Enhances Central Okanagan Search and Rescue’s Medical Expertise

At Callahan Property Group, we are dedicated to supporting our community and those who work tirelessly to keep us safe, that is why we are thrilled to announce our 3-year pledge to further advance the efforts of the Central Okanagan Search and Rescue (COSAR). This collaboration aims to enhance their medical expertise as they respond to an increasing number of emergency calls in the region.

Financial Support: A Pledge for Progress

In our mission to bolster COSAR’s capabilities, we have pledged $75,000 over the next three years, with an initial contribution of $25,000. This significant financial support is crucial for several key areas:

  • Advanced Medical Training: Ensuring that COSAR volunteers have access to the latest medical training to handle emergencies efficiently and effectively.
  • Essential Medical Supplies: Providing the necessary medical supplies that are vital for on-the-spot care and treatment during rescue missions.
  • Vital Equipment: Equipping COSAR with equipment to enhance their operational efficiency and safety.

Leadership and Vision

Bruce Callahan from Callahan Property Group shared his enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “We are thrilled to support COSAR. As outdoor enthusiasts, we resonate deeply with their mission. Our backcountry is beautiful and vast, and we aim to keep it safe and accessible. Knowing that COSAR is ready to assist when needed is reassuring.”

Bruce’s words echo the sentiment of many who enjoy the natural beauty of the Okanagan region. The collaboration with COSAR is not just about financial support; it’s about a shared vision of a safer and more accessible backcountry for everyone.

Community Impact

Brad Trites, president of COSAR, emphasized the importance of community support, saying, “With the unwavering support of partners like Callahan Property Group, we are better equipped than ever to fulfill our mission of serving the community in times of need.”

3-year commitment to powering Central Okanagan Food Bank’s Food Rescue program


In a heartfelt commitment to combat food insecurity and reduce wastage, Bruce & Bob Callahan of Callahan Property Group proudly announces its support for the Central Okanagan Food Bank (COFB) by sponsoring the organization’s fuel costs over the next three years, with a total contribution of $100,000.

The significance of this sponsorship extends far beyond financial assistance; it fuels the engine of compassion and sustains the lifeline of hope for countless individuals and families in our community. With Callahan’s support, COFB can continue its vital food rescue efforts, which constitute approximately 60% of the nourishment provided through the nutritional hamper program.

“The food bank tackles situational food insecurity at all demographic levels — from new mothers to children to seniors who are struggling with hunger and faced with a lack of resources to nourish their bodies,” remarks Marnie Sisson, at Callahan Property Group. “Our city’s population is growing, and as a business community, we must offer our support in whatever capacity we can.”

At the heart of Bruce and Bob’s commitment lies a deep resonance with COFB’s food rescue program, which ingeniously redirects surplus perishable food away from landfills and transforms it into nutritious meals for those facing food insecurity. Established in 2018, this initiative has been instrumental in addressing the environmental, social, and economic challenges of food waste.

This program operates tirelessly, 364 days a year, forging partnerships with 18 local retail grocery partners and farmers to salvage all perishable food, regardless of viability. Edible foods find their way to individuals, families, and community agencies, while inedible items are repurposed for animal feed or composted.

Through this alliance, Callahan Property Group and COFB stand united in their mission to nourish both bodies and spirits, turning the tide against hunger and waste. Together, they embody the transformative power of collective action and the unwavering commitment to building a community where no one is left behind.
