Meals on Wheels needs volunteer drivers!

For nearly two decades Meals on Wheels of Nanaimo and Kiwanis Village have worked together to serve people who require a nutritious hot meal on a daily basis. The program has evolved into an invaluable and necessary initiative. Meals can be provided on an ongoing basis or short term if clients are recovering from illness or surgery. Meals are delivered from Monday to Saturday to clients in Nanaimo and Lantzville.

ElderDog Canada is a national, registered charitable organization dedicated to ageing people, ageing dogs, and the important connection they enjoy. Our purposes are to assist and support older adults in the care and well-being of their canine companions with the goal of “keeping love in the home”.

ElderDog Canada is always looking for volunteers interested in working with elders and their animals as part of any ElderDog programs. Volunteers can walk dogs, transport dogs to the vet or groomer, deliver dog food, or help out with basic grooming. 

These activities mean the world of difference to someone who needs help. Very often, it means the difference between someone being able to keep or give up their beloved companion.

Loaves and Fishes is short of warehouse volunteers.  There is an abundance of food available in the community, but it requires a mass volunteer effort to ensure it gets sorted and out to the people who can use it.  Without volunteers the food doesn’t gets sorted and people go without.  

If you would like to consider volunteering, and helping to stem the flow of waste, please go to Loaves and Fishes website ( and fill in an online form under the Volunteering Tab.

 We are looking for people who are mechanically or technically inclined, but that is only one of the many positions we hope to fill in the Health Equipment Loan Program. The biggest gap we have right now is for our Client Services position. This role is great for people who like helping clients and working in a reception or administrative role. Client Services volunteers are the welcoming faces of the HELP depots and directly help people coming into the office to access the loans.  As mentioned, we do have other roles and I encourage anyone who is interested to briefly review our open positions and reach out to my team if they have any questions:
