Have you thought about volunteering for a local agency that supports seniors? 

Come explore a wide variety of volunteering opportunities for local agencies supporting seniors.  There will be table top displays by community agencies showcasing who they are, how they help the community and how you might be a perfect volunteer for them.

Now is your chance to chat with local agencies who could benefit and appreciate your help.

This is a FREE event with parking at the back of the building.

Share your story about why you volunteer

As part of this project, we are inviting people to share their stories about why they volunteer.  Perhaps you volunteer for the local gardening club or animal rescue organization.  We are hoping that people will do podcasts with us (taped telephone interviews) about what volunteering means to them and share these stories on our website.  Who knows, perhaps your story 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.
