“If I can help somebody, cheer somebody,
with a word or a song, then my living will not be in vain.”

With 2200 members and growing, we currently have over 270 volunteers!
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and become more involved in the Club. Volunteering also helps out the Club, as many aspects are managed by its members.

All the income collected by the individual clubs within the Evergreen family and by the Evergreen Lounge food services and special events are invested back into the Club to pay for expenses and buy new equipment.

To get started, fill out a Volunteer Registration Form and submit to the Filberg Centre front counter, or in person or by email to Cathy Audia (email address below). Thank you!

If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact the Assistant Coordinator, Cathy Audia at 250.338.1000, or email caudia@courtenay.ca.

Special Events Volunteers
There is always another fun special event on the horizon, which could not take place without dedicated volunteers! If you are interested in helping out at one of our special events please let me know. This is a truly flexible opportunity. I can put your name to our list and you may get a call asking if you are available for the next event.

Tax Volunteers
For our 2019 Community Volunteer Income Tax Program we will need Program Greeters and Income Tax Preparers. This is a valuable free community service that helps out people from a variety of backgrounds. Training provided.

Kitchen Volunteers
We are looking for a few more volunteers to join our fun kitchen crew. The kitchen volunteers provide a valuable service to the Evergreen Club. They give seniors a place to come and socialize with peers while enjoying an affordable meal. The kitchen volunteers enjoy being part of a team and getting to know new people. As a thank you they enjoy free coffee, tea, breakfast or lunch during each shift. Our schedule works around your schedule and all training is provided.

Would you like to go on a Free Trip?
Each and every excursion planned by Evergreen Club staff has a volunteer Trip Host, and as a thank you for taking care of the group the Trip Host receives a free trip! Excursions range from 4 hours in length to all day. Trip hosts keep attendance and are the group’s liaison when arriving at destinations to take care of reservations, tickets and other details on the day of the trip. If this sounds like a great opportunity to you, please let me know as we are compiling a list of interested volunteers. This volunteer position would suit a person with good mobility, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to troubleshoot if needed. Training provided.

Have a Flair for Decorating?
We are currently looking for a person to work as a partner with our decorator. Volunteers decorate the lounge with the change of seasons and for special occasions. We are looking for someone to bring their suggestions and ideas.

 

Those listed above are just a sample of some of the opportunities we have for volunteering.
