Past Events

CAVWSS Charity CS.jpg

In previous years we have relied heavily on funds raised from our Charity Checkstops in Blackfalds and Gasoline Alley, which have raised up to $15,000, assisting our organization in delivering services to victims of crime and tragedy in our communities.

Due to Covid-19 our year-end Charity Checkstop has been postponed. We are hoping you will consider giving in a little different way this year and donating online through ATB Cares who will match 15% of your donation! 

 

Thank-you to all of our generous community partners and sponsors!

Be Part of Something BIG!

After Black Friday & Cyber Monday

December 1st 2020

Join the movement dedicated to giving back!

This year, Central Alberta Victim And Witness Support are participating in GivingTuesday with a #ThankYOU campaign.  Without your donations and our volunteers, we would not be able to provide the level of service that we do.   We appreciate each and every one of you, #ThankYOU. Follow us on Facebook or visit our events page to learn more about our dedicated volunteers.
