10am – 3pm
Parkinson Recreation Centre
1800 Parkinson Way, Kelowna
This annual event — now in its 16th year — draws about 80 local non-profit organizations who need volunteers to support the programs and services that make our community a better place to live. They are looking forward to meeting and talking with new volunteers face-to-face and providing all the information they need to find their volunteering ‘home’.
For volunteers, this event represents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about each organization, and how their personal involvement can make a difference in our community. One stop, with all the answers they need to make their choice (Or choices!) on where they will give of their time.
