Hello North Kootenay Lake community!
We have a little video and message we wanted to share with you. It’s almost the end of volunteer month, so first, on behalf of community services, I’d like to say thank you to all of the volunteers in this area who give so much.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of a health community like the north Kootenay lake as they not only fill the roles of our fire department and search and rescue, but also the non profits. These organizations that are working to provide solutions for some of our communities great challenges and make day to day life better for people; they can’t exist without volunteers.
Kaslo Community Services is one of these organizations, and it’s in need of a couple more people from the community to offer a few hours a month as board members.
Our community services organization provides supportive programming for young families, children, seniors, youth. On top of this, Kaslo Community Services also provides: safe housing for those at risk to domestic violence; free to access counselling; and food security for those in need. Without community members volunteering for the board, it could not exist.
Please contact us if you’d like to learn more.
Below is a video project Neil Johnson was asked to be part of to share why he volunteers for Kaslo Community Services (note, the video was made when we were still North Kootenay Lake Community Services Society).
