Help Your Edmonton CARP Chapter

CARP_VolunteersWanted_02262014[1]We always need, and value, chapter volunteers for everything from setting up tables and chairs to serving as board members.

If you have some spare time and would like to join a committee, get to know some new and interesting people helping to plan an event, work on a meaningful project, or sell tickets at the door for a dance, please let us know and we’ll get you involved at whatever level you prefer.

Whether you think you can do a little or a lot, or simply want more information, please contact us when you are ready. We’ve listed some opportunities below, but of course these tasks can be bundled or broken down into smaller pieces, depending on how you would like to be involved.

Call us at 780-690-7490 or e-mail [email protected] if you’d like to share your time, your expertise, or just get involved.
