Volunteer expo on way for New Westminster

January 25, 2017 by  

New Westminster is well known for being a city with a big heart, and during an upcoming event, over 40 local organizations will have a chance to meet with people who are looking for a way to give back to their community.

The 15 Annual New Westminster Festival of Volunteers will bring together not-for-profit and service groups with those who are interested in lending them a helping hand. Organizations will have display tables set up where they will provide information about who they are and what they do, and the public can browse through them to find the one they feel is the best fit for them. Those who choose to participate in the day can have branded ad specialties printed to give to members of the public who stop and ask for information about them.

As a way of saying “thank you” to the attendees for their generosity, a free yoga class will be offered along with other entertainment to enjoy. Each person who visits one of the displays for more information can have their name entered in a draw to win a $500.00 shopping spree at Royal City Centre.

The New Westminster Festival of Volunteers will take place at the Royal City Centre on January 28th. Additional information is available on the Community Volunteer Connections website.
