Christmas is just around the corner, and we know that this time can be extremely stressful! Although the holidays are a time of giving, it’s also a great time to help those around us who may not be as fortunate. So, why not take some time away from the presents, parties and big turkey dinners to spread some Christmas cheer this holiday season?
If you’re interested in volunteering in Vancouver, the best place to start your search for Christmas volunteer opportunities, is the website GoVolunteer.ca, operated by Vantage Point. The Go Volunteer online search provides a space for not-for-profit organizations to post volunteer positions.
A sample of current volunteer positions include:
- Christmas Carolers at Yaletown House Society
- Decorating & serving food at the Carnegie Community Centre
- Christmas Tree Lot Volunteer
Volunteering during the holiday season is not only a great stress-reliever, it’s selfless and fun. It can also be a great way to meet new people, or to learn more about a part of the city you never knew existed.
If you’re not able to volunteer during December, don’t think that the opportunities end there! Many organizations rely on volunteers throughout the year, and would appreciate any time you would be willing to give.
