Many people shy away from Volunteering with the thought that it will be a lot of work. At MGS, we have TASKS that need doing, and believe that many hands make light work. Instead of one volunteer taking on a large role, many volunteers take on the tasks of that role. We still have someone in that council position, but that is more of a supervisory role to coordinate the TASKS that are being done.
In Canada, a staggering number (almost half) of the population volunteered their time, energy and skills to non-profit and charitable organizations. Manitoba has the second highest rate of volunteerism in Canada. Our desire to help others, meet new people, gain experience in a casual environment, get involved in our heritage community and make a difference are some of the reasons why we do it.
Volunteers do not necessarily have the
time; they just have the heart.

Are you self-motivated and ready to jump into wherever the need is greatest? Or do you have a specific area of interest? We all have different experience and a variety of life skills that we prefer to contribute. Please look at some of our Volunteer Opportunities. And if a TASK seems a better fit, we have those too!
