Do you want to give back but don't have a lot of time? Love working with children?
We have a SHORT volunteer opportunity for this Sunday, January 20th from 12 pm - 2:30 pm, at the Parkinson Rec Centre.
Project Literacy will have a table at the Interior Savings Unplug & Play Kick-off event where we will be doing engaging activities with children. The premise of the event is to engage children and families in activities that don't include screen time or technology, and to showcase the agencies that offer these activities.
You would be running our table, which would basically consist of supervising children doing a stamping activity with paints, and perhaps joining in :) If you'd like this short volunteer opportunity, please call Anna at 250-762-2163 ext. 4 or email firstname.lastname@example.org - OR if you're interested in attending here's a link to the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/...
My Mom and I are so appreciative we were chosen by Interior Savings to be a part of the Interior Savings $10,000 Local Give! We each received $100 that we donated to Project Literacy Kelowna Society to help purchase more educational resources. Feels good to do good! #localmoneyforlocalgood Do Some Good @DoSomeGoodCA
Looking for another volunteer opportunity, and would like something fun and short-term?
Then Computer Tutoring is for you :)
- Tutors don't need to be “hi-tech” or tech savvy
- Our main goal is to support seniors who’d like to learn Facebook, email, Skype, smart phones, etc
- Meetings can be held at a time and place convenient to both tutor and learner
- Hoping for a commitment of 6-8 weeks, generally, 1 hour a week
If you’re nervous about tutoring, we provide training and ongoing support. No experience is necessary. A kind personality and general knowledge of Facebook, email, etc. is what we’re looking for. Tutors have to be 19 + years old, and agree to a free criminal record check, as they will be working with vulnerable seniors.
A huge vote of thanks to the Interior Savings Local Give Program and #localmoneylocalgood! I have given the $100 to Project Literacy Kelowna Society to assist them with their innovative and expanding programs which are so instrumental in allowing people to achieve their full potential at home, work and in the community.
Pancakes for purpose! Brent Luehr and I enjoyed a great breakfast, while supporting the Raise a Reader campaign, run by Project Literacy Kelowna Society. Thanks Christine for continuing to #DoSomeGood in our community!
Project Literacy Kelowna Society and the JCI's of Kelowna need your support. The two organizations have joined forces for this year's 30 Day Cash Giveaway Raffle. Consider purchasing a $5.00 raffle ticket to support two amazing causes and you might come away with some cash.
