P.A.R.T.Y. Program

Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth — help a team of committed community members present this hard-hitting and informative program to today’s youth at the Grade 9 level. The focus is to impress on youth the consequences of making bad choices and to prevent tragedy. If you are people-oriented with good communication skills and an outgoing, welcoming personality, then this might be the position for you.

The scarf project

Put your needles and hooks to work for a great cause. More than 650 athletes will “go for gold” at the 2012 Special Olympics Canada Winter Games in February 2012. Show them your support by hand knitting or crocheting a cozy scarf that will become a treasured keepsake well after the games end. Scarves need to be made to certain measurements and colours. Participate in this fun and worthwhile project, as the scarves are made with love and worn with pride.

If you enjoy reading books, are patient and organized, and would enjoy bringing that pleasure to others in our community, this opportunity will interest you. In this role you will provide outreach library services to seniors and/or persons with disabilities, who are unable to visit the library themselves. You will determine the individual’s preferences for library materials, then select, deliver and return library materials for them.

Habitat for Humanity has started the build at Aurora Place and needs you. This is a great opportunity to get involved in our community, learn new skills, work in a team and contribute to the future home of a local family. Skill range can be anything from beginner to trained tradespeople — orientation and training will be provided for all. Sign up as an individual or as part of a group. Join and experience the satisfaction that comes from lending your hands and heart to a family in need.

Are you friendly and compassionate and have a desire to help seniors? Using your own vehicle, provide transportation for seniors to healthcare and other appointments. You will receive reimbursement for gas costs. Valid vehicle registration, required insurance and a clear driver’s abstract are required. Times and areas are flexible and up to you.
