Thank you so much to this amazing crew who worked hard in our offices yesterday. The team painted our 2nd floor and cleaned the carpets upstairs too. We are so appreciative of your work at our office and in our community!
A message from our Volunteer Coordinator:
Good Afternoon! I'm the Volunteer Coordinator for United Way Leeds and Grenville. We are looking for a number of volunteers with a lot of fun events coming your way.
On August 4th the ever popular Automotion is being held at Blockhouse Island. The following is a schedule and we are looking for volunteers to fill these spots please. It's a great opportunity for grade 9-12 students to earn some volunteer hours. All are most appreciated.
The following is schedule for selling tickets at the entrance to Blockhouse.
8:30-11:00am 10 people
11:00-1:30pm 10 people
1:30-3:30 PM 10 people
We are also looking for 2 volunteers for each time slot, to sell 50/50 tickets for Automotion. We are looking for 2 volunteers for each time slot as well, to Sell Air Canada and Summer Fun Raffle Tickets on behalf of United Way. The ticket sellers for both of these must be 19 years of age please.
I look forward to hearing from anyone wanting to help our beautiful community, by supporting such a worthy cause. Please email me, and give me a time you are available to help out. It's going to be a great event again this year.Thanks everyone! Brenda
