The United Counties of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry have a long standing history of volunteerism. It’s an area that’s had generations of families look out for their fellow community members and helping to raise the collective standard of living. Our goal with VolunteerHUB.ca is to empower people to keep helping within their communities and to keep working to build a more vibrant and healthy community. It is for this reason that the Social Development Council of Cornwall and Area’s Poverty Working Group (PWG) had begun working on Volunteerism in Stormont Dundas and Glengarry. In January 2014, the PWG had outlined a need for more coordination among volunteers and volunteer managers in our community, a plan was made, and funding was located to fund the creation of this website. This website is the first step of many on our journey to becoming a more vibrant community.
It’s time to get proactive and volunteer for things that resonate with you. Hate loud places? You can find an opportunity that is quiet and calming. Love being outside? You can find an opportunity outdoors. Accessibility to the opportunities that make sense for you. Use this site as a tool to connect with you with the opportunity that best matches with your personality and skill set.
If you have any questions, or would like to help with making our community a healthy and vibrant place, please do not hesitate to contact us.
