Candlelighters Association of Newfoundland and Labrador

If anyone is interested in helping out the Candlelighters Association of Newfoundland and Labrador this Saturday for a few hours at Bidgoods in Goulds, Amanda Kinsman would appreciate hearing from you. Her e-mail is kinsmanat@gmail.com and her phone number is 709- 745-4448. She needs at least three volunteers to assist.

In addition, if anyone can help with the RCMP Klondike Event on Friday, May 9, please let me know ASAP as volunteers will be assigned to appropriate stations. Klondike Night will help fund the eight-day Camp Delight for oncology kids aged 7-17 and their siblings.

These are great ways to add to your Duke of Edinburgh volunteer hours or collect service hours for Career Development 2201. There are many opportunities for you to contribute; seek out what interests you most!

Remember to bring your book or sheet for coordinators to sign. And have fun!
