Launched at the outset of British Columbia's COVID-19 restrictions, Rainmakers Now was a student-led current affairs broadcast that ran seven days a week from March 19 to June 26, 2020. It involved 20 regular contributors from the Rainmakers Interact Club of Charles Hays Secondary School. Over 100 individuals were interviewed during its three-month history. The interviews and feature segments together provide an enduring record of a community's response to the developing challenges of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Rainmakers Now program was originally conceived a platform to promote free pickup and dropoff services for residents in the midst of COVID-19 isolation. As restrictions were loosened, Interact Club members shifted their focus, launching a fundraising initiative. The goal is to "pay it forward" by raising money for a $500 scholarship. The award will be presented to a member of the 2021 Charles Hays Secondary School graduating class. Additional funds raised will become an endowment, earning interest for future Rainmakers Interact scholarships.
