The Comox Valley Volunteer Connector has held the hearts of many individuals and volunteers over the years. After closing its doors in 2018, a volunteer, who did not want to see this valuable resource lost, rebranded the resource as the ‘Comox Valley Volunteer Connector’ and continued to work with non-profit organizations to foster volunteerism. In the spirit of community collaboration, in April 2019 the Comox Valley Volunteer Connector began operating under the umbrella of Volunteer Campbell River and offered the services of a ‘virtual volunteer centre.’ While Volunteer Campbell River did a wonderful job keeping this valuable resource viable, it became apparent that this service needed to be housed in the Comox Valley. The Comox Valley Volunteer Connector is now back in the Comox Valley under the umbrella of the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Moving forward the Comox Valley Volunteer Connector will provide a place:
- For non-profit members to connect with potential volunteers
- For individuals to seek opportunities to give back
- To foster volunteerism in the community
