Volunteer in Surrey, BC
Are you looking to volunteer in Surrey? We appreciate your interest in helping us at Rick’s Heart Foundation. We would not be able to make nearly as big of an impact in the world without our compassionate, dedicated, and hard-working volunteers.
Rick’s Heart Foundation spearheads projects taking care of our neighbours locally and globally including the marginalized population, the at-risk, those battling addiction, low income individuals, or simply those needing some joy in their lives. Our mission is to make a positive difference in the world by supporting those at risk in our local community and beyond.
For those looking to volunteer in Surrey, BC, our main project which we are accepting volunteers for is with our Heart For Music Program, which is based in Surrey, BC. With many places shut down during COVID-19, our seniors in Canadian care homes have really taken a hit. These seniors are bored and isolated from the world. The Heart For Music program brings joy, peace and sweet memories to these seniors. They are set up with personal playlists downloaded with music that is meaningful to them. The program is now at ten care homes in BC and is planning on expanding to 100 homes.
Volunteer positions may include fundraising, virtually connecting with care homes to create playlists, and supporting admin staff in various tasks.
We are looking for passionate individuals who want to volunteer in Surrey with a team that is changing the lives of our local seniors. Right now we have less access to care homes because of Covid-19, and as a staff we are working from home, so involvement as a volunteer needs to be flexible and may change depending on the health situation.
Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”
