Many residents would love to have a special friend to spend time with. Perhaps to go for a walk, play a game of scrabble, or just sit and chat over a cup of tea. So many of our residents have led rich and interesting lives and would love to share their memories with a friend. Friendly visitors are especially important for residents with no families or whose loved ones live far away.

Recreational activities are many and for each, a number of dedicated volunteers are needed to remind residents of the activity, encourage participation and help residents get to the venue. If the event is one where refreshments are served, volunteers help serve and then collect dishes afterwards. At the end, the volunteers help residents return to their rooms. Recreation Assistants find this is a great way to get to know residents, staff and other volunteers in a fun setting.

The Glebe Report is urgently seeking a volunteer to take on the role of distribution manager. There are two parts to the role. The first involves maintaining and cultivating the volunteers who deliver the papers door to door. The second requires a weather-resistant space (porch, garage, etc.) to store the bundles of papers for up to 48 hours before delivery. Although this position only requires 10-15 hours’ commitment each month, it is crucial to the continued success of the paper.

We are also seeking a volunteer to take on the role of commercial distributor. The Glebe Report is generously supported by our local businesses. One of the major elements of that support is a commitment to provide copies of the paper to their clients. The Glebe Report
urgently needs a volunteer with a car who can devote a day each month (second Friday of the month) to distribute papers to many local businesses. The time commitment is a full day on the Friday of publication, with minor follow-up deliveries in the days following. This position is key to the continued success of the paper and requires a commitment of about 10 hours/month.

We would welcome a volunteer who would be interested in taking on one or both roles. If you are interested, please email chair@glebereport.ca. Honoraria are provided.
