Annual fundraiser underway

Crime Stoppers in the South Okanagan Similkameen are again embarking on their annual door to door “coupon fundraiser” throughout our area.


Crime Stoppers in the South Okanagan Similkameen are again embarking on their annual door to door “coupon fundraiser” throughout our area.

We have engaged 4 Elements Consulting Inc. (formerly Rocky Mountain Marketing) again this year and trust that their interaction with the public will be as respectful as it has been in the past.

This is one of our major fundraisers for the year for Crime Stoppers. All canvassers will be dressed in an orange and black jacket with Crime Stoppers embroidered on the left front area along with photo ID around their necks.

We encourage all citizens to ask to have a look at their ID if they so wish.

Crime Stoppers is a “community based” program and as such, does not receive government funding nor any police budget, monies so the generosity of our citizens, service clubs and businesses is integral to the success of our program.

We would like to thank all of the businesses that have participated in offering discounts for services they provide in our “coupon booklet” and encourage residents of the South Okanagan Simillkameen to patronize them when possible.  The cost of the coupons will remain at $25 plus HST for nearly $1,100 in savings.

Crime Stoppers would like to thank everyone  in advance for their consideration in supporting our program and helping to keep our communities safe for all. Should anyone have any questions or concerns pertaining to this fundraising campaign or the canvassers, please contact Al Sismey Regional Crime Stoppers Coordinator at 250 770-4721.


Again, our sincere thanks for your help in this very important Crime Stoppers fundraiser.
