Volunteer with West Coast Kids Cancer Foundation

At WCK, we are thankful for our dedicated volunteers who make it possible to provide our services and programs.

We intake new volunteers into open roles once a month to ensure we are intentional with your time.  Our volunteers bring an array of skills and volunteering with us looks different for each person; below are some areas of opportunity: 

Volunteers are important in supporting our food programs so families can be nourished at the hospital and all across the province.
