Service Opportunities – November 26

There is a volunteer opportunity on Thursday, Dec. 6. This is a SMUS sponsored event and transportation and a chaperone are provided. Organizers of the Jingle Mingle event need 10 people to help take down decorations from 8 to 10:30 p.m. Boarders would get to miss prep, but with houseparent permission ONLY. The bus will leave SMUS at 7:50 p.m. at Crothall and will return back by 10:40 p.m.

Jingle Mingle is a premier social event, attended by more than 350 of Victoria’s community, social and business leaders in support of the BC Cancer Foundation, hosted at the Fairmont Empress Hotel.

If you’d like volunteer with take-down, please send an e-mail to Ms. Parker.

Volunteers are needed at Anderson Hill in Oak Bay for some restoration work. They have three upcoming dates:

  • Saturday, Dec. 1

They start at 10 a.m. and will be along the Centennial Trail – downslope or to the south. They have gloves and equipment, you just need to bring a water bottle and a snack, and dress for the weather. For more information contact Christina at

The Extreme Outreach Society is hosting their 21st Annual Christmas Dinner on Saturday, December 15. They need help with a variety of jobs.

Christmas is a special time of the year for everyone but it also brings a lot of challenges for many families and people in need. Bringing hope and joy to the lives of those in difficult circumstances is one of the main goals at Extreme Outreach Society and this is one of the ways they strive to help! People come together to celebrate the joy of Christmas with a traditional hot turkey meal and gifts.

Sign up online to volunteer.
