We Love Our Volunteers!
Quite simply, Warden Woods could not operate without our team of over 300 dedicated volunteers, who help out in virtually every programme of the Centre.
Our volunteers help:
• Deliver Meals on Wheels to the homes of seniors
• Read stories and play games with children in our children’s programmes
• Sell delicious fruits and vegetables at our Fresh Produce Market
• Keep our premises and surrounding neighbourhood clean
• Cook and serve lunch to our Friendship Club seniors, Friday Folk, Byng Towers and Teesdale clients
• Plan and execute special events, outings and community festivals
• Serve as Board and Committee members and much more!
