Food Bank Fundraisers and Food Drive Volunteers

Often volunteers are required to help man information tables, solicit donations for draw prizes or raffles, sell raffle tickets, or set-up and tear down. If the flexibility of this type of volunteer works better for you please let us know.

Fundraising events are an important resource for raising funds to help us provide programs and services in Whistler. When you organize a fundraising event, you’re not only raising money to support WCSS, you work as an ambassador on our behalf in the community to raise awareness. If you feel you have an event that aligns with our Vision and Mission, please contact us. We would supply a Fundraising Agreement to endorse your event.
