Volunteering and Service Hours

Brynn Lewis, Staff Writer

To all those who are drawing a blank on what they’re doing for the wonderful religion requirement known as “Mandatory Volunteer Hours”—never fear, Macsource is here. Thanks to the help of Mrs. Roth, we have a long list of possible organizations in Edmonton that you can volunteer with. Some will want you for a day, others will want you for a year, and the organizations span a really wide spectrum of Things You Can Do. There’s something for everyone! Remember that the more you are involved now, the more doors will be open to you in the future…

Good luck and don’t forget to write that reflection.
