Volunteer Campbell River will move from City Hall to the Enterprise Centre at the end of the 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.
“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.”
Volunteer Campbell River is a non-profit society dedicated to advancing the quality of volunteerism and community engagement through leadership and training to individuals and non-profit organizations.
At the January 29, 2014 financial planning meeting, Campbell River City Council voted to approve the relocation of the Volunteer Centre to the Enterprise Centre and move the City’s Information Technology Department into the basement space at City Hall. The relocation is funded from the facility reserve, with total costs expected to be $82,000.
