For those of you who have not heard the ALS Society of Canada has been chosen to be one of the charity recipients for HOPE Volleyball this year. If all goes well and the event is successful up to $25,000 will be donated to the client services in my region. It has been designated to a pilot project for caregivers in order to provide some respite services starting 2016. In addition to the funds, we receive increased awareness through media coverage and advertising of the event.
For us to be charity recipients we must agree to provide 56 volunteers for the day of the tournament. Our volunteers will be supporting security at the event by keeping eyes and ears open and notifying the official security if we see something of concern. I still need 12 volunteers for the afternoon shift – 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. For your volunteer services you will receive a t-shirt, lunch, bandana and an opportunity to attend a volunteer recognition event.
If you have a family member or friend that would be interested in volunteering can you please have them contact me as soon as possible. I can take a big sign of relief once my 56 volunteers are obtained.
Thank you very much. Have a wonderful weekend.
