Volunteer: New opportunities knocking

New nonprofit organizations have joined the KCR Volunteer Opportunities online listing.

Eight nonprofit organizations have recently added new volunteer positions to the KCR Volunteer Opportunities online listing.

Are you looking to work in an office setting? Volunteer as Receptionist Support at Kelowna Community Resources.

As a Free Store Manager with Inn from the Cold, you will hone your organizational, supervisory, reporting, and community relational skills. Free Store Greeters assist guests and helps with the sorting and shelving of donated items.

Kelowna Kodiaks Street Soccer volunteers create safe, fun and energetic street soccer tournaments to our community twice a year, working on the planning and hands-on skills.

If you want to support the mental health of women and their families, give your time to the June 23 Ride Don’t Hide community bike ride, sponsored by Canadian Mental Health Association and Shoppers Drug Mart.

Event Aid Station Attendants cheer participants while handing out water and food to keep riders nourished during their exertion.

During the ride, Volunteer Runners will ensure that important messages and supplies are delivered to key people at strategic locations.

As riders cross the finish line, the Special Event Support Team will be proud of their work set-up activities.

Do you love getting others involved in a cause? Do you love to tell stories? Global Citizen Kelowna is looking for a Marketing Coordinator.

Perhaps you have watched TV coverage of dragon boats sliding gracefully through the water. There is a place for you in making that event a reality this year by contacting Kelowna Dragon Boat Festival Society.

Are you up for a larger challenge? Consider becoming one of two Co-Run Directors to work with the Run for the Cure Committee sponsored by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

As Co-Run Director, you would focus on either logistics or fundraising and share the leadership role when interacting with other volunteers.
