The Hospital Auxiliary is seeking junior volunteers to work with seniors at Mount Cartier Court.
The organization says this is excellent exposure to the health care field and even an opportunity to apply for a bursary from the Revelstoke Hospital Auxiliary.
“Young volunteers will have an opportunity to learn valuable new skills, meet new people, earn volunteer hours, gain work experience, give back to the community and most importantly, enjoy fun and camaraderie with other volunteers and with seniors,” it said in a statement.
Possible duties would include one-to-one visits, assisting with meals, helping with crafts, events, outings, baking, parties, games, personalized music project (ipods for seniors) and assisting at the auxiliary thrift store.
The days they would be needed most are Tuesday or Wednesday from 4-6 pm at the cottages and weekend mornings and Thrift Store hours by arrangement.
For more information please call 250-814-2282.
