The next Service Saturday is coming up, and there’s lots of great organizations for Yorkies to lend a helping hand to:
The girls can learn more about where donated items go, and how the Food Bank operates, all while stocking shelves and assisting with donations.
The Wish Drop-in Centre
Learn more about an eastside organization that provides support to women who do or have worked on the streets. Volunteer Yorkies will tour the facility with the Executive Director, and clean & sort donations.
Learn more about this christian organization, which provides housing, work and support to youth and adults in the downtown eastside.
For more information, see Community Service Board and sign-up by Tuesday, January 25. Feel free to email Ms. Stanger as well.
See you on Service Saturday!
More Service Learning News:
A group of 16 committed Grade 11’s and 12’s have been volunteering their time with the KidSafe program every Tuesday since September. KidSafe provides support to at-risk youth by providing programs when traditional schools are closed.
Thanks to our drivers Mr. Junkeer, Mr. Braune and Mr. Sinclair, our students leave YHS and arrive at Queen Alexandra Elementary school at 3:30 pm. Each York House tutor is partnered with a Grade 6 or Grade 7 student who has been recommended for the program by their teachers. Our tutors help students with their homework, chat, play card games and do group activities together. The York House tutors have been outstanding – always there, showing kindness and patience and above all, show a personal interest in the students and what they are going through.
