How We Help

About 20 years ago, some Whistler locals had a simple idea: they opened a thrift store and sold donated goods to fund social services in the community. The idea was brought to life by Whistlerite Greg McDonnell who became the non-profit’s first outreach worker. WCSS has evolved and supports a range of people – wherever they’re at. New moms figuring out parenthood. An injured labourer facing a loss of income. Families struggling to make ends meet. Individuals faced with food insecurity. Seasonal workers trying to make friends. Seniors feeling isolated. Bargain hunters looking for low-cost goods. Anyone in the community can count on WCSS. Our caring, supportive outreach team will guide them to get the support they need.
