For years, City of Waterloo volunteers have helped make this city a vibrant one. This week is National Volunteer Week, a time to say “thank you” to our volunteers.
We celebrated our volunteers in a centre-spread in Wednesday’s Waterloo Chronicle. It’s also available on our website. These volunteers and many others have dedicated their time and skills to the community.
When we hear the word “volunteer,” many of us think of litter cleanups, and although cleaning our community is important, there’s so many other ways you can stay involved.
Here are some available positions:
• Shopper escort volunteer
• Hostess for community dining meal program
• Master of ceremonies at the Adult Recreation Centre
These are just a few of the positions we have available. There are so many other ones that may suit your interests and experiences. For some, personal shopping sounds ideal and for others it may be a senior-outing day program. Visit our website to read a full list of programs and find the best one for you.
As National Volunteer Week comes to an end, I want to once again thank those of you who devote your time and skills to Waterloo and beyond. Our community would not be the vibrant one it is without you.
I encourage anyone with questions about volunteering to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and become the difference that shapes our community.
