Volunteer Opportunity with Canadian Red Cross

The Vancouver branch of Canadian Red Cross are actively seeking volunteers for their Health Equipment Loan program, which provides medical equipment such as wheelchairs, crutches and bed lifts to people in our communities. Volunteers take on regular shifts to manage the office, the front desk or to maintain, drive and deliver equipment. Volunteer roles vary in level of responsibility and commitment. Red Cross provides FULL TRAINING to all volunteers. There are a number of positions available. HELP Client Services is one of the positions with greater need. The Vancouver HELP depot is at 209 W 6th Avenue; there are also other locations wanting help, including Burnaby and other metro areas.If interested, CLICK here to apply online.

Maheshi Wanasundara, the Coordinator for Volunteers (HELP), has found that her volunteers enjoy their shifts as they see volunteering as an opportunity to socialize, learn new skills,  keep active, and find routine in life after retirement!
