Embrace Your Community — Volunteer!

The February issue of theHumm is chock-full of listings from local organizations who are seeking volunteers. If you have time or talents to dedicate, there are festivals, museums, conservation areas, arts and activity organizations just waiting to hear from you. One of the biggest categories in our listings is Community Organizations — groups that work tirelessly (and often without stable funding) to provide much-needed services to people of all ages and from all walks of life. If you click on the link above (or pick up a copy of this month’s Humm!), you will see a complete listing, but here are two who expressed a particularly pressing need when they sent in their listings:

Salvation-ArmyThe Mississippi-Rideau Lakes Salvation Army serves Lanark County from offices in Perth and Smiths Falls by providing emergency food hampers, clothing, help with utilities and much more. In order to provide these services we need the help of volunteers. Thrift Store clerks, cashiers and stockers along with lunch program workers and receptionists are some of the positions that need to be filled. If you are interested in helping your community, please call Debbie at 283–3563.

As-Good-As-New-VolunteersAs Good As New Store needs you! Looking for positive and enthusiastic people to help in the Lanark County Interval House thrift store at 33 Bridge Street in Carleton Place.
