Last year more than 2,700 children from Vancouver Island were treated at BC Children’s Hospital. The Victoria Festival of Trees raises over $100,000 each year to support research, purchase life-saving equipment, and fund the urgent needs of the hospital. To make the magic of the festival a reality, they rely heavily on the support of dedicated volunteers.
OBJECTIVE: Working with the Festival of Trees Committee and Leadership Volunteers, Kick-Off Celebration Volunteers will help enhance sponsor experience and raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital by assisting decorating teams and providing information about onsite fundraising activities.

The ideal volunteer for this position is friendly, enjoys the company of seniors and is a good listener. Visits could include walks, playing cards, reading or general socializing.
Volunteers must complete a thorough volunteer application process which includes a site tour and interview for placement. If placement is agreed upon by both parties reference checks, a criminal record search, and a TB test is required.

They have four locations (Pandora, Cook, Langford, and Westside Village). The stores carry good quality secondhand items and provide excellent opportunities for you to give back to the community, gain valuable work experience and have fun. They provide training and will do what they can to establish something that works for you. Successful volunteers receive a store discount.
