· learn new skills that may lead to new career options,

· develop new skills that may strengthen your resumé,

· develop leadership experience,

· make new friends and contacts,

· and have fun!


What our volunteers are saying

St Patricks Day.jpg
My mother lived in a residence before she died and I appreciated the care she received from staff and volunteers.   When I retired I promised myself that I would give back by volunteering in a home.   As a volunteer at the St-Andrew Residential Centre, I have personally grown from learning about the elderly.  I feel a deep sense of personal satisfaction from helping to brighten their lives.

My time as a volunteer at the St-Andrew Residential Centre has been a special experience.  Knowing I have positively impacted the lives of seniors in my community has inspired me and brought me much fulfillment.

As President of the St. Andrew’s Auxiliary, I am honoured to help deepen the positive impact of the St-Andrew Residential Centre on the care, comfort, and dignity of our seniors.  Through member-led fundraising, we enrich the quality of life at the Home, by supporting recreational programs, music and reading material, outings, bingo games, birthday parties, and more. From the small, like providing for residents’ clothing alternations, to the big, like our annual Strawberry Social, I believe the Auxiliary plays a key role in enhancing the well-being of our seniors.

Becoming an Auxiliary member can be a deeply rewarding experience.  Join us to become a part of this worthy endeavour!  No commitment is too small, and we are grateful for any and all time contributions.  For more information, phone the President, Helen Dearlove at 514 488-3987 or the Treasurer, Sheila Allan at 514 489-8354.
