VOLUNTEERS WITH GREEN THUMBS AND ENERGY NEEDED!
CALLING ALL CAMPBELL RIVER GARDENING CLUB MEMBERS, SERVICE CLUBS, SCHOOL GROUPS AND THOSE WHO JUST LOVE TO GARDEN!
DO YOU HAVE THE ENERGY AND KNOW-HOW TO MAKE A GARDEN A SHOW PIECE? CAN YOU VOLUNTEER SEVERAL HOURS A WEEK TO HELP US MAINTAIN A SPECIAL COMMUNITY SPACE?
WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HELP CLEAN UP THE SALLY WELLMAN MEMORIAL GARDEN, after that long winter.
About the Sally Wellman Memorial Garden:
The space for the Sally Wellman Memorial Garden was graciously donated to the Campbell River Hospice Society by the City of Campbell River.
The Hospice Society decided to create the memorial garden, in loving memory of Sally Wellman, a past board member and positive influence on the society.
Our garden is located along the sea walk at the Rotary Park on the South Island Highway.
Garden Plaques may be purchased from the Hospice Society.
For a minimum donation of $50.00 we will provide a plaque for you to have engraved with your personal message in memory of a loved one. Once you have your plaque engraved, you can return it to the Hospice office and an employee will have it mounted on one of the bricks located on the garden walkway. (Please note plaques and monuments not provided through our office will be removed)
Families may also plant a non-invasive plant in the garden.
We believe this special space, overlooking the ocean provides welcome peace, security and comfort.
PLEASE CALL LYNN at 250 286 1121, or email email@example.com if you have time, energy and perhaps tools to bring to the clean up!
Our volunteers are caring men and women who are specifically trained by Hospice in the following areas:
- In understanding the needs & concerns of the dying and bereaved.
- To listen confidentially and support without judging or advising.
- To provide client companionship, support, respite and vigil service.
- May have experienced an illness and loss in their own life and have personal insight.
- Provide assistance by effectively accessing the society and other community resources.
- Undergo regular RCMP security check.
Volunteers - An Important Resource
Volunteers are the most important resource community organizations have. The ability of people to work willingly together for the betterment of their community and themselves is a valuable resource.
The image of the volunteer has changed over time. Gone is the stereotype of the middle-aged housewife with time on her hands. Now volunteers come from all walks of life: they may be a teenager learning to manage responsibility by caring for wounded wildlife, an executive sharing management skills with a community group or a retiree enjoying a new friendship as a volunteer reader at the community library.
Ideally, volunteers find the donation of their time and energy a meaningful experience for themselves as well as for the organization. A true win/win situation.
