CNIB Night Steps

September 23, 2017

Do you want to have fun, make a difference and help individuals living with sight loss in your community? As part of an enthusiastic and dedicated team, our volunteers ensures participants enjoy the walk under the stars. You can volunteer with your friends or make some new ones!

We need volunteers to help with setting-up, running kids’ activities such as face painting and crafts, parking, security, registration, cheering on walkers, and more on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

Most of the shifts will start in the afternoon and go until 9 p.m. We’ll also need volunteers for an earlier shift, too (the exact times will depend on which community you volunteer in). Prior to the event, we’ll need volunteers to help with event promotion and logistics.

As a volunteer, you’ll get an orientation to CNIB, training on the job and a t-shirt. After the event, we would be happy to provide a letter confirming your volunteer hours, if you need one.
