The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre (WOCRC) considers volunteers to be an essential part of the Centre.
There is a diverse range of volunteer opportunities, such as delivering meals to seniors and physically disabled adults, providing companionship to isolated seniors, assisting seniors in our Adult Day Program, helping young people with homework, participating in preschool drop-ins or supporting abused women in WOCRC’s Violence Against Women program.
These are just some of the many ways the support and enthusiasm of our volunteers allows the WOCRC to offer a wider variety of programs and services.
We have some urgent needs for volunteers (please see the sidebar at right), and encourage you to join our volunteer team today – volunteering can be an extremely rewarding personal experience that has a positive impact on your community!
We would like to thank the more than 200 volunteers who generously gave over 20,000 hours of their time this year to better our community. Your compassion, commitment and energy are sincerely appreciated. Thank you also to winners of the coveted Eva James Award over the years.
