Tom Harris was a heart-and-soul Nanaimo native and the force behind Harris Auto Group and Tom Harris Cellular.

Tom was also the cornerstone of compassion for Vancouver Island’s communities, inspiring countless to give back with time, resources, and heart. In 2017, the world lost Tom too soon. But his philanthropic efforts live on. THCF stands as a living testament to Tom’s boundless generosity, ensuring his vision and mission continue. Thanks to the overwhelming support from countless individuals and businesses, we’ve raised over $1,500,000 to amplify local causes across the Island.
