Salvation Army Chilliwack 100 Years Million Dollar Fundraiser


The Salvation Army Chilliwack Million Dollar Fundraiser is all about celebrating the 100th Anniversary of The Salvation Army operating in Chilliwack. For the last 100 years The Chilliwack Salvation Army has worked to provide assistance to needy families throughout Chilliwack. This has included feeding thousands every month through our Food Hamper, Community Kitchen and Pantry programs. We have also ensured men and women experiencing homelessness have a safe, warm and dry place to sleep. With your support, we can continue to meet these needs in our community for the next 100 years.


Here is what these funds will primarily be used for:

1. Food Purchasing – Food Bank usage has increased by over 40% in the last year alone, and we will be using these funds to purchase food to keep up with this increased demand. We will especially be looking to increase our supply of fresh produce to support “The Pantry”, our free grocery store that feeds over 4000 families each month.

2. Facility Maintenance & Equipment – We have been in our current space for over 40 years, and our facilities are being strained by hard usage. These funds will be used to perform vital and overdue building repairs and maintenance, as well as purchase new equipment to replace aging hardware, such as 2x new forklifts for our warehouses.

3. Expansion of Family Services apparatus – We would like to better support Food Bank families beyond just food security, by providing services that minister to their needs in a more holistic manner. This could possibly include counselling services, parental support, financial counselling, youth & children’s support and more.
