Volunter CR on the move

Volunteer Campbell River will move from City Hall to the Enterprise Centre this month, thanks to an ongoing agreement with the city that will support the organization with free office space for another 10 years.

As a result of the move, Volunteer Campbell River will be closed Thursday, May 1 and will re-open at 900 Alder Street (South Entrance of the Enterprise Centre) on Monday, May 5 with new hours: Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“The City of Campbell River recognizes the valuable contribution that Volunteer Campbell River makes to our community. In addition to solving a space crunch at City Hall, moving Volunteer Campbell River to a larger space at the Enterprise Centre will allow for an expansion of the program,” says Dave Morris, the city’s general manager of facility and supply management.

“We are excited and pleased to move into these new facilities with a 10-year term which demonstrates the City’s continued support for our program,” says Louise Howes, executive director of Volunteer Campbell River. “Expanded office and meeting space will allow us to continue our vision of working together to build strong and healthy communities through volunteerism.”
