We havethe answer to your question

Can I give more than an hour per month?

Absolutely! The schedule is flexible and will be adapted according to your availability and your needs.

I have no driver's license or car; can I still volunteer?

Although many services require travel on your part, we can match you with someone else who has a driver's license or find volunteer opportunities near you. The social communication can even be done by telephone from the comfort of your home.

Will the fuel for my trip be refunded?

Unfortunately, our funding does not allow us to pay for travel expenses. Only the transportation service provides a refund for mileage expenses.

Is there a time of year when you have a greater need for volunteers?

In the fall, many of our volunteers leave their homes in Prescott-Russell to spend the winter in warmer regions. It is not surprising that the demand for volunteers is greater during the winter season. That said, we need volunteers throughout the year.
