Volunteering in Sarnia-Lambton

VOLUNTEERING: A Great Way To Grow

Storytelling Volunteer

Our seniors have life experiences and stories in their memory bank that are worth preserving for generations to come.  VON will provide storytelling volunteers with a set of questions.  They meet with a client once a week for eight to ten weeks asking questions and recording the answers.  They will then compile the questions and answers into a binder to present to the client.  Resources and training are provided.

Telephone Support Volunteer

Volunteers are needed to ensure that seniors continue to receive their check-in calls through the Tel-Check program.

Volunteers are also needed to ensure that when people reach out to the Distress Line, their call will be answered.

For over 40 years volunteers have been providing telephone support to isolated seniors and individuals struggling with day to day life challenges in Sarnia Lambton.
If you are a good listener and care to speak with individuals who need support and to feel connected, call Donna at Family Counselling Centre 519-336-0120

Volunteer Visitor

Visit a lonely and isolated senior on a weekly basis.  You can take them out or stay in and visit.  Our clients have lived productive lives but now find themselves alone and staring at the walls, unable to get out without a friend.  They have much to offer someone who takes time to listen!
