Jeff - ECVO Volunteer

Volunteering keeps me involved in the community and there’s a good feeling that comes with that. I think it was my Dad who first taught me about volunteering. He always visited people in the neighbourhood and helped-out the elderly, even when he was 80 something. I started volunteering as an entertainer. A friend and I visited seniors’ centres – sang songs, told jokes and got some audience participation going. Now I volunteer at Seniors Association of Greater Edmonton (SAGE). I run the drop in scrabble group, the GLBTQ group for seniors, and the photography club. Volunteering keeps me active and I feel like I’m doing well.
