Building Strong Communities – initiatives

What we are working on

Make sure you come out and check out what CUPE does to support the community, including the use of the CUPE water cart at upcoming events.



Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association

For several years CUPE 358 has donated to CTRA to assist in funding the programs they offer. For 2020 we have donated $800 in support of their wonderful program.

Stuff the Truck

Stuff the Truck is Juice FM and Vista Radio’s week to give back to the Cowichan Valley and use the power of radio to raise food and cash donations for our local food banks. CUPE358 did our part by purchasing 2 pallets in 2019 and 2018.  In 2020 we helped smash previous year’s records and purchased 4 pallets!
