Canvass door to door in your community: This is a great way for you to connect with your neighbours. Every door you open helps Canadians live longer lives. 

Opening doors in your neighbourhood supports life-saving research. Think of the repairing of a newborn heart in its first moments, saving a woman’s heart from a deadly truth, helping a parent recover from a disabling stroke, or stopping cardiac arrest from taking its next life.

Online fundraising: Can be done by anyone at any anytime from the convenience of their home. You simply register online. This is a great volunteer opportunity for people who have little time but would like to help raise important funds for our community.

Heart Fund Day: will be held at Coopers Food on Feb. 12. A donation of 25 cents from every bag filled will be given by Coopers Food to The Heart and Stroke Foundation. All it needs is two to four hours of your volunteer time to support this great community event.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation is a volunteer based health charity which leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living and advocacy.

Kelowna’s office for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. and Yukon serves the Okanagan and Kootenay areas.

To volunteer please contact the Kelowna office by phoning 250-860-6275 or by registering on line at www.heartandstroke.ca/help.

For other volunteer opportunities or to customize your volunteer profile, go to www.kcr.ca, Volunteer Opportunities Search or phone 250-763-8008 ext. 25.

Dawn Wilkinson is the coordinator for the Community Information and Volunteer Centre.
