Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: CNIB
For Canadians who are blind or partially sighted, physical distancing can present a unique set of challenges
With physical distancing measures in place, it can be difficult for people with sight loss to pick up their groceries and prescriptions. If you're willing to help, we'd love to hear from you. Together, we'll ensure our community stays connected. We currently have a need for a volunteer to assist with picking up groceries for a participant weekly or bi-weekly in the area of Arnprior.
You can enquire to tracy.holland@cnib.ca, or apply through the CNIB website link, https://www.cnib.ca/en/programs-and-services/live/virtual-vision-mate-program?region=on_east and identify grocery shopping in Arnprior in your interest form.
Location: Arnprior
Deadline: Jun 30, 2021
