Volunteers Needed for the SOS Gingerbread Village on Grouse Mountain 2016

Dear German & Austrian & Swiss Community,

Gingerbread VillageAs you may know, SOS Children’s Village is non-profit organization whose mission it is to provide stable homes, a supportive and healing environment and village-based family care programs to help foster children and youth in need grow into caring, self-reliant adults.

Annually we work together with Grouse Mountain to put together what is called a Gingerbread Village Challenge at their Peak of Christmas. Professional and aspiring bakers of all ages and skills put their creativity and baking skills to the test by building unique Gingerbread creations. They are then placed on display at Grouse Mountain to be judged by the public. (Event link –

Each year SOS puts together a group of volunteers that can interact with the public, hand out information about SOS Children’s Village BC and assist the guests with voting on their favourite gingerbread display!  Every volunteer receives a free parking pass and gondola ride for Grouse Mountain. The Gingerbread village runs from Friday, November 25th 2016 until Sunday, January 1st,  2017. It is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm. We are looking to fill 3 – 5 volunteers at the Village per day.

If you could assist us in spreading the word and our poster to ensure we have volunteers to support our Gingerbread Village, we would be so grateful for the kind-heartedness.
