Volunteer impact stories

You can make a difference one hour at a time

Whether you’re a student, a working parent or retired, there are many ways you can realize your goal of giving back to the community. Our volunteers enable us to reach out to more people in the Calgary community than ever. We empower you to get involved in unique ways and respect your other commitments.

Give a little or give a lot

Here are just a few of the people that move the cause forward through volunteerism.

Just a little time

  • As a busy man balancing work life and family, Sam Salloum helps raise awareness in the community by volunteering for one hour whenever he can.

A bit more time

  • Like many of our Walk & Run volunteers, Brian Mahaffey’s five-hour gift of time at Thanksgiving is essential for race participants’ safety and enjoyment.

Even more time

  • By contributing 4 to 5 hours each month as a support group facilitator, John Shyluk shares his first-hand knowledge of dementia with other care partners and encourages positive outcomes in some difficult situations.

Plenty of time

  • For 3+ hours/week, Susan Little visits with persons living with dementia at the Club 36 Adult Day Program - providing respite for caregivers and a safe social/recreational environment for participants.
  • For 1 afternoon every week, Muriel Keeling provides operational support at the main office and building the capacity of the organization as a whole.
