Is your organization looking for a way to get involved in the community, and earn a bit of cash?
The Chilliwack & District Agricultural Society is looking for two groups to be a part of the 147th Chilliwack Fair, from Aug. 9 to 11. Cathy Oss, the society’s president, says they need one group to facilitate the event’s parking, and another to execute the gate/admission process.
The opportunity is open to community groups and charities willing to give their time, who in return will receive a share of the donations and gate revenue.
“This could be a significant boost to two community groups as their portions have been in the range of $4,000 to $6,000 for the past several years for a weekend of fun work,” Oss said. “We have entertained the idea of hiring staff for these positions, however being a non-profit ourself, we really do want to spread the financial support to other non-profit groups in our community.”
Because the groups will be dealing with money and the public, Oss said they will need to ensure that the volunteers are adults or closely supervised by adults. There is an application process where details will be decided upon, and questions before applying are welcome.
