INTRODUCTION

Whistler Community Services Society (WCSS) invites and welcomes proposals for Artwork submissions for their new Re-Build-It Cube truck wrap project. The Whistler Community Services Society (WCSS) has supported Whistler’s social health and wellness since 1989. The thrift store it started is now a powerhouse in Whistler’s circular economy, diverting over a tonne of useful items from landfill each day at its Re-Use-It and Re-Build-It Centres. Funds earned from the social enterprises are reinvested back into the community. A non-profit with charitable status, it relies on the generosity of volunteers and donors to support community members where they need it most, like the Whistler Food Bank, Outreach Services, Connect Whistler and 30 other programs and services
