Volinspire today

Kelowna residents have logged 135,059 volunteer hours in 2017 thanks to a nationwide initiative. 

The Canada 150 for 150 Volunteer Challenge was made to encourage Canadians to give 150 hours of volunteer time in 2017 in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. 

In the official challenge, Kelowna is in second place, just behind Ottawa. 

“Fortunately for us, Volinspire is a local company and they have made it possible for local non-profits to log volunteer hours for those individuals not online.  This will give us a better picture of the impact of volunteerism in our community,” said Stephanie Moore Project Coordinator for KCR and the 150 Volunteer Challenge.

The challenge continues right through until the end of the year with plenty of opportunities to volunteer in the next couple of months. 

Nov. 28 is Giving Tuesday, and from now through December there will be many local non-profit organizations looking for help with their holiday events, fundraisers and Christmas hampers.

If you are looking for volunteer opportunities or want to log your volunteer hours for 2017, visit Volinspire.com.
