Share your story about why you volunteer
As part of this project, we are doing podcasts and videos of people sharing their stories about why they volunteer. Noted below are people sharing what volunteering means to them. Who knows, perhaps their stories will inspire others to roll up their sleeves and help a community group or cause.
Building community + helping seniors = awesome!
This project is all about building community and coming together to help seniors in our area.
Special thanks to the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program for funding this project.
