Canadian Cares is participating in the Foodworx competition from August 8 – August 15 and we want your help! This fundraiser is an initiative put on by Whistler Community Services and runs during Cranworx Whistler. It is a  friendly competition amongst businesses in Whistler to see who can collect the most amount of food by weight during a week long competition.

How can you help?

 

From August 8 – 15 CWA will be collecting food at our front desk. If you bring a donation for the food bank to our desk in the Carleton Lodge we will give you 20% OFF any of our Summer tours! (Direct Bookings Only)
