For the week of July 12 to 19, 2019
Raindrops keep falling on my head, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get out and do some volunteering! St. Albert Community Information & Volunteer Centre has many volunteer opportunities to choose from and can help find the right fit for you.
Are you looking for an opportunity to help individuals in St. Albert remain independent? Vision Mate volunteers provide one-on-one companionship and general support to a person who is blind or partially sighted. Approved activities may include going on walks, helping with errands such as shopping and organizing, recreational activities, and friendly visiting. The time commitment for this volunteer opportunity is approximately two hours every week for a minimum of six months.
Did you know that volunteers report that forming a relationship with a person who is otherwise isolated is a very rewarding experience? Alberta Health Services is looking for volunteer visitors for isolated home care clients in the community. Volunteers can choose their client based on interested, availability and location.
