Friends of 504

While the Air Cadet Program is partially funded by the Department of National Defence, we rely on the dedicated group of parents, guardians, and community members that form the Friends of 504 Support Association. This non-profit organization is the primary civilian sponsoring body for 504 RCACS and their hard work and dedication make this program possible.

Volunteer Screening/Information:

A “screened volunteer” is a parent/guardian who has filed with the Air Cadet League for a volunteer card.    In order for a parent/guardian to become a “screened volunteer” you must fill out the Police Information Check App and the EPS Third Party Notification Form.  In addition the Air Cadet League requires each candidate complete the Volunteer Registration Screening Application forms.  These forms require that we have three character references, who are not related to the candidate, and to undergo an interview with the Volunteer Screening Coordinator.   Each candidate must provide one piece of picture ID and a second identically named piece of ID.

Parent Volunteer Information Form

The Friends of 504 would greatly appreciate it, if as many parents as possible be screened as volunteers.  There are frequently fundraising activities, like bottle drives, where parents/guardians are asked to transport cadets from one venue to another.  It is required to have a  screened parent/guardian perform these tasks for insurance purposes.  Please submit the complete the ACL Volunteer Complete Screening Pkg to the Volunteer Screening Coordinator, Andy Yun SSC Chair of The Friends of 504 Support Assoc.

Fundraising Initiatives

Cookie Dough

The 504 Cadet Squadron just got a whole lot sweeter!  One of our fundraising campaigns is selling English Bay Gourmet Pre-Portioned Cookie Dough. This is a product that our supporters will certainly enjoy while our group earns 40% profit per item sold.

Contact friends, neighbors, relatives and work associates.   They are great to have on hand……AND MAKE GREAT GIFTS TOO!   Stock up your freezers and help support 504.

We take Cookie Dough orders from October to late November with deliveries in early December, in time for your Christmas Baking needs.  Questions can be directed to Caroline Howarth.

Bottle Drive

We hold two major bottle drive fundraisers over the training year.  One in October and one in the spring (date to follow).  Please support our cadets by canvassing your friends, neighbors and families for their bottles.   Bring in your bottles and help support our cadets training activities!

Ice Melt

This will be our second year for our Ice Melt fundraiser.  Ice Melt comes in 20 KG pails and is safe for the environment and pets.  Questions can be directed to Annette Yun.  (order form to come soon)

Salisbury Green House Gift Cards

The 504 Cadet Squadron will be selling Salisbury Greenhouse gift cards as one of our annual fundraisers.  This is an excellent opportunity for our squadron, as we make 20% of total sales.  The gift cards are available in denominations of $25, $50 and $100 and do not expire.  The cards are usually at the hanger to be handed out the beginning of May  – just in time for Mother’s Day!
