Volunteers in Action

Volunteer Happenings in our Community

Our dedicated volunteers working in the Resource Library put in 50 hours a month shelving books, calling clients with overdue books, entering data and maintaining our array of pamphlets.

Family Centre offers a variety of opportunities within our Early Learning and Family Support programs. You can find our volunteers preparing materials in the Centre of Excellence, interacting with parents and children in programs, wiping up water around the water table, collecting registration forms or cleaning after a program ends.

Family Centre sees a very diverse group of volunteers with varied abilities. We are pleased to see all our volunteers bloom and develop skills.

Volunteers help Family Centre staff bring awareness of our programs and services by helping out during our community outreach. We have had great volunteers help us prepare our float for the annual entrance in the Whoop-Up Days Parade, as well as hit the pavement walking alongside it! We've been privileged to have volunteers help with outreach activites such as Welcome Wagon Trade Show, Children's Festival, Word on the Street, Party in the Park, and numerous voluteer fairs within the school districts. They can speak directly to the impact Family Centre has on volunteerism in Lethbridge.

Family Centre recognizes our volunteers during National Volunteer Week. "A volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach out far and wide to improve communities. Undeniably, volunteers rock." Volunteer Canada

Family Centre could not fund raise without a solid volunteer base. Volunteers provided  hours at Santa Photos reaching many people who came to see Santa and raising donations for programs. In addition, McHappy Day  volunteers provide a variety of services assisting McDonald's and Family Centre staff. Special events help volunteers share their stories about Family Centre and have lots of fun! Volunteers help ground us and remind us why we provide this great service to our community.
