South Okanagan Similkameen Crime Stoppers is currently going door to door selling our annual Gift Card fundraiser.  The cost remains the same as in previous campaigns,  at $25 plus tax.  All of the money generated remains in this area to help pay rewards, answer phones and train volunteers.

This campaign is running in Penticton until Feb. 16, then on to the Princeton area for February 17 to 23.   These canvassers will be wearing jackets shown above along with photo ID around their neck.

Crime Stoppers is a Community Owned program therefore they must fundraise to pay their operating expenses for the upcoming year.  We rely solely on the generous support of our community businesses and residents throughout the South Okanagan Similkameen as we do not receive any Government funds or money from Police budgets.

We would ask that you consider donating to this worthwhile community program so we can continue to help the Police keep our communities safe.

On behalf of the Board of Directors we thank you for any help you may be able to give. Any questions or concerns, please call Regional Coordinator Al Sismey at 250 770-4721.
