Altrusa Campbell River is always looking for new members to join us in helping our community. We are an inclusive group of people who enjoy giving back by helping with hands on volunteering or monetary donations. Our main goal is to help women and children in need; with a special emphasis on literacy; but we help many different organizations including Salvation Arm, Food Bank, CR Hospital Foundation, etc.. One of the projects we all love is our Baby's Best Chance gift bags  for mothers who register with Family Services for the Pregnancy Outreach program. Many of our members make various items for mothers and babies, and we purchase other items that new mothers will need.  Many community members have also donated their time in making items for our gift bags and we are very happy to accept all donations for this project.  Along with Babies Best Chance gift bags, we do reading in the schools, bake muffins for a school lunch program, and  make quillows for Anne Elmore House and Victims Assistance. We also participate in a Book Give Away at the Campbell River library on Halloween, organize and host our Golden Girls Tea at the Community Centre, along with bell ringing for the Salvation Army at Christmas time.  During the pandemic we have been busy making masks for several organizations and helping other groups in providing food for homeless outreach programs. When we are able to gather together there is lots of fun and camaraderie with our social events and fund raising work bees.  Come and see what we are all about by joining in and helping with one of our work bees. There you will find fun, laughter and a wonderful group of committed and caring people.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
Volunteering with Altrusa Campbell River will give you the joy and satisfaction that comes with helping others, and giving back to your community. But it also gives you new friendships and fun as we all work and play together.
