Canadian Red Cross
The Canadian Red Cross in Terrace is currently looking for volunteers. We will be hosting an Open House on Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. We invite the public to come and learn about Canadian Red Cross programs, including the Health Equipment Loan program and the different volunteer opportunities available.
Colin Parry, a current Health Equipment Loan and Disaster Management volunteer, will be on hand to answer questions about the various volunteer roles and his experience as a Red Cross volunteer.
The Health Equipment Loan program has many opportunities available. Health Equipment Loan is a volunteer-driven, community-based program that provides essential health equipment to individuals on a “by donation” basis. Providing equipment such as wheelchairs and bathing aids can make a real difference to people’s lives.
Access to this service lets seniors stay at home longer, helps people to return home from hospital sooner and supports palliative patients who wish to spend their final days in the comfort of their own home. Volunteers are needed in Terrace to continue to provide this essential service, as well as expand the hours.
A few hours a week can make a world of difference to someone in your community.
Volunteer times are flexible and hours of operation are currently Tuesdays and Fridays12 noon-2 p.m. with the possibility of expansion. Full training and support is provided for all volunteers.
We are located at 4450 Greig Road. All interested parties can contact Sandra Sawtell at 250-564-6566 ext. 37 or by email at sandra.sawtell,,,redcross.ca.
