FEATURED NON-PROFIT – VOLUNTEER KAMLOOPS
Friday, March 8 before Anthropocene: The Human Epoch
Back again this year; our Featured Non-Profit events will shine the light on worthy organizations in our community. March 8 Volunteer Kamloops will be in attendance to share information and bring awareness to their important organization and the work they do.
The Kamloops Community Volunteer Services Society, operating as Volunteer Kamloops, is committed to the concept that volunteerism improves the quality of life in the community and, therefore, supports and strengthens volunteerism through promotion, recruitment, education, orientation, and referral services for volunteers and organizations in our community and surrounding areas.
Since 1985, Volunteer Kamloops has recruited and refereed volunteers to our members who could be a non-profit organization or anyone taking on a volunteer project in the community.
We currently provide three main programs. The Link Program, Focus Program, and Snow Angels Program. The Link Program works with community organisations and individuals looking to volunteer. The Focus Program helps link or integrates mental health consumers with community organizations in a way that promotes their involvement and enhances community awareness about various mental health issues. The Snow Angels Program gears up every November to help seniors and individuals with mobility challenges by removing snow from their driveways and sidewalks. Each year, Snow Angels volunteers assist over 100 seniors and individuals with mobility challenges in Kamloops with snow removal services.
