Volunteer Connection

The Innisfail Volunteer Connection aims to connect volunteers and the many community events, activities and organizations that require their services.

WhyVolunteer

Snow Angels Needed

With the snow having well and truly arrived, we're stepping up our search for Snow Angels this winter.

Duties

  • be committed to clearing sidewalk / walkways within 48 hours of a snow fall. Note the snow shovel will be supplied,
  • be able to promote and practice positive relationships with the registered resident the volunteer has been assigned to,
  • report to the Community & Social Development Coordinator promptly if unable to commit to your schedule or detained for some reason.
