Volunteers

For the week of Dec. 6 to 13, 2019

Get into the holiday spirit and volunteer! Give the gift of your time and talents! St. Albert Community Information & Volunteer Centre has many volunteer opportunities to choose from and can help find the right fit for you.

Blood donors

Accidents and illnesses don't take a break over the holidays, unfortunately. Canadian Blood Services is asking you to roll up a sleeve and donate blood in St. Albert on the following dates – Dec. 24 – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Victory Life Church and Dec. 27 – 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Century Casino. Your support to Canadian Blood Services is truly valued – by donating, you could be saving lives!

Mealtime companion

Sturgeon Community Hospital Volunteer Program needs friendly volunteers for a variety of shifts to assist nursing staff during meal times in providing an experience for patients to enjoy their meal in an environment that is comfortable, inviting and supportive. Minimum age of 16 years.

Kettle Campaign

The Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Campaign still needs volunteers for two-hour shifts at various locations. The campaign runs Nov. 12 to Dec. 24 and money collected helps those in need in providing a better quality of life – help make Christmas merry and bright!

Friendly visitors

Winter can be a lonely time for those who are isolated and alone due to health issues, limited mobility, loss of family, etc. Spend some time with a client of Alberta Health Services Home Care program as social contact could be somebody's bright spot this holiday season. You can choose your client based on interests, availability and location and are asked to give approximately one hour per week, tailored to your schedule.

Board members

The Stop Abuse in Families Society (SAIF) envisions a society free of abuse with a mission to promote healthy respectful relationships through education, advocacy and support. SAIF is seeking volunteers to serve on its board of directors. If you are looking to give back to your community and an opportunity to apply your accounting, fundraising, and/or expertise as a first responder where it's most needed then this role might perfect for you!

Fix It Café

Do you like fixing electronics, appliances, sewing, repairing jewelry and other random household items? If so, we want to utilize your skills. We have a team of people that repair broken items for people in our community. Our goal is to keep things out of the landfill by educating others on how to fix things.

Refugee donations

Giving Refugees Hope in Uganda is looking for resourceful, energetic members for its board of directors who are excited and passionate about helping people. They also need fundraising volunteers to work at donation desks in local shopping malls, receiving donations in support of refugee children and a medical clinic in Uganda.
