Where we need volunteers
Many people look forward to the weekly activity at the Day Centre. You can make their day even better by helping us serve meals and dining with participants, or by baking a cake for a special occasion. This allows our staff to spend more quality time with attendees.
Morning phone call
Many of the people we serve live alone, feel isolated, or worry about their health or safety. A quick, cheerful phone call from a volunteer can brighten their day.
If you’re a student at CEGEP Champlain – St. Lawrence looking for on-the-job experience with seniors, this is the program for you! Students receive special training on how to conduct in-home physical stimulation and recreational activities safely.
Welcome people for their annual vaccinations.
In exchange for your time and dedication, we offer:
A pleasant and safe environment
Jeffery Hale – Saint Brigid’s is well run and has a family-like atmosphere. The CNESST handles volunteer compensation.
If you have questions about your tasks, client relations, or anything else, a volunteer coordinator is always available to oversee activities and help make the volunteering experience as enjoyable as possible.
An invitation to our annual volunteer recognition event
Every year, we hold a special event to thank all our volunteers. It’s also an excellent opportunity to meet other community members.
A letter of recommendation
We would be delighted to write a letter of recommendation stating that you are one of our volunteers. You can use the letter to apply for a job, a bursary, and so on.
An opportunity to give a lasting gift
