VEQ seeking volunteers

Seniors Out and About: VEQ is looking for volunteers for their new project, Seniors Out and About. This project is aimed at allowing English-speaking seniors to keep their autonomy and actively participate in community activities through safe and free transportation on a weekly basis. We need volunteers to accompany the seniors on the bus and throughout the various activities and outings. This opportunity is a great way to give back to the community while giving the participants the reassurance they need to enjoy their time out. If interested, please contact Heather McRae by phone at 418-683-2366 ext. 224 or by e-mail [email protected].
