Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association: KTRA has experienced severe flooding this year. Because of the damage caused by the flooding, we are hoping to recruit more volunteers to help us out with the cleaning process. We expect the water to have receded enough for us to be able to do a good cleanup before the middle of August. It will take another month after that point for the water to be gone completely. If you are interested in helping, contact Masami Herman at 250-554-3811 or email@example.com.

The Seniors Outreach Society: Good Morning program volunteers will call seniors as a daily check on their well-being and as a friendly call each day. Volunteers make the calls between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., Monday through Friday. If the client is unable to be reached, then an emergency contact person, arranged in advance, or a staff member will be called to check on the well-being of the client. Emergency steps will be taken if necessary. Friendly visitor program volunteers provide friendship to seniors in the community through regular visits and/or phone calls.
