About the charities & foundations:
Whistler Community Services Society / Whistler Food Bank
Many community members in Whistler are facing immediate changes in their employment amid the COVID-19 virus measures to suspend and close several operations across the resort. As a result, the Whistler Community Services Society, which operates Whistler’s Food Bank, is preparing for an unprecedented demand from those experiencing sudden food insecurity. These donations are vital as the Whistler Food Bank does not receive funding from the government to operate. Monetary donations help the Food Bank to purchase whatever is most needed at a wholesale price. mywcss.org Find out more and donate online

Your generous gift—no matter the amount—will support the more than 40 vital social services and programs we provide to thousands of children, youth, adults and seniors. you can choose for your donation to go where it’s needed most or to a specific case. sscs.ca Find out more and donate online
Squamish Food Bank Society
Over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the number of food bank recipients. Over 25% of those are children. Our Squamish Seniors are also a part of a growing trend of new customers. As well as single and two-parent families who struggle with the increase in food and rental costs. The cost of living here is a big part of what brings people through our doors. Our demographic is wide, it also includes low-income working families and those on disability. Your donations can help provide food for those in our community who need support. A child who goes to school on a full belly will have a brighter future than if they go empty.
