TWO RIVERS MEAT FUNDRAISER 2019
September 9 – 23, 2019
The Whistler Children’s Centre is extremely pleased to be working with Two Rivers Specialty Meats once again on this annual fundraising campaign, the WCC will receive 15% of the sales purchased through the link below. It’s a circle of support; a win for our organization, for families who order, for Two Rivers Meats and for the local farms involved.
As a non-profit society the Whistler Children’s Centre is reliant on fundraising to sustain the high quality of programming, while keeping costs affordable for families. These fundraising monies will be used to enhance the experiences we offer the children in our facility by purchasing learning equipment, toys and reading materials that support learning and early childhood development. These funds also allow the children to explore their community on bus rides and gondola rides, and experience visits to local restaurants, museums, and cultural centres. Stock up your freezer and support the WCC and local farmers.
Please feel free to share this link with friends and family who may want to join in the ordering, every little bit helps!

Two Rivers Specialty Meats is a North Vancouver based company that offers meat and poultry products sourced from small, local BC and Alberta farms. The animals are “locally sourced and ethically raised without hormones, antibiotics or chemical feed additives.” The Two Rivers team is an active, forward-thinking crew of certified journeymen butchers, Red Seal chefs and other food types who are serious about meat. This is a family-owned business and the people who work here are part of our family tree. Together, we bring meat from farms to tables in a way that lets you understand and appreciate the food you eat. Our work is guided by three key values: quality meat products, respect for the animals and people we work with, and excellence every step of the way—from how we choose our partners to the cuts on your plate.

Don’t know what to do with those leftover jack-o-lanterns from Halloween? Head over to the annual Pumpkin Drop at Whistler Fire Hall 3 in Spring Creek, in support of the Whistler Children’s Centre. Families get the chance to climb up three stories and drop their pumpkin out a window by donation.
Firefighters will be on hand to scoop up the smashed pumpkins, where they will be deposited into a compost truck onsite. If you don’t have a pumpkin to bring, no worries there are always lots of spares on hand. There will also be warm beverages, baked goods and BBQ treats for sale.
See all the action here!Whistler Children's Centre
