Service Opportunities – October 19

The Parents’ Auxiliary is hosting their annual Junior School Fall Family Fun Fest Halloween Extravaganza, which will take place in the SMUS double gym on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Last year they had a great turnout of student volunteers and hope to have the same again this year.

The link to the sign-up sheet is and you can sign up for as many shifts as you like. Most of them are 45 minutes long but there are some longer shifts for set-up and clean-up.

You are encouraged to come in costume or wear all black, but it’s not mandatory. It is a fun event and there are some really great activities this year including a photo booth, a “scare room”, silent auction, craft table, games, food and more!

The Quadra Village Community Centre is looking for volunteers for their annual Quivering Village Carnival and Creep-House. Last year SMUS students were a huge part of the event and they are hoping for our help again!

The event is on Friday, Oct. 27 from 6 to 9 p.m. and there are numerous opportunities such as:
– Actors for the Creep-House
– Set-Up and Take Down
– Greeters and Hosts

Volunteers are an integral part of Victoria Women In Need Community Cooperative. They are always looking for volunteers to help in their resale shops.

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.
