Service Opportunities – June 6

Soap for Hope is seeking an artist to help create a cozy and pleasing space. The organization is open to all creative ideas, and they specifically need someone to create a large mural that has the names of all the different shelters and organizations that Soap for Hope helps. The also need help in their warehouse, making kits and organizing donations.

The Soap for Hope program provides hygiene kits to local shelters, transitional homes, food banks and low income seniors in many communities on Vancouver Island. They do this by working with hotels to gather their gently used amenities. Volunteers then reprocess these usable products to create hygiene kits. Each kit contains a bar of soap, an individual sized bottle of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion.

If you are interested, please email or call 250-590-1462.

There is a new volunteer opportunity at the James Bay Care Centre. They have recently reinvented their Tuck Shop and are looking for people to help run it. Responsibilities include providing shop items to residents who visit the shop (confectioneries, convenience items), tracking the items the residents purchase through their account, occasional cash sales for non-residents (family and friends), offering or taking suggestions from residents that may expand the shops selection, and most importantly, having a good time interacting with the beautiful people at the James Bay Care Centre!

Currently, the idea is to have the Tuck Shop open from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, twice a week, although there is nothing set in stone. They are flexible. If you are interested, please contact Dale at
