CSPC GARAGE SALE & BBQ A GREAT SUCCESS!

The CSPC Garage Sale & BBQ Fundraiser took place on Saturday, July 20th. The fundraiser was a great success and provided an opportunity for CSPC to create awareness of our Society in the community! We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the volunteers who helped set up and take down the event, those who donated items, and for those who stopped by for a hot dog or baked goods! THANK YOU for your support!

Finger Ribbon ReminderVOLUNTEER MONTHLY TIME SHEETS 

Have you turned in your Chilliwack Senior Peer Counsellors Monthly Time Sheet lately? CSPC collects our Monthly Time Sheets to keep track of the invaluable hours of time and support that our volunteers provide to seniors in the community. It is important that our volunteer records are submitted and up to date as our Society depends on the data to record an accurate representation of the volunteer work that CSPC facilitates. CSPC submits this information to the Government and other agencies to maintain our Society standing and receive funding. Monthly Time Sheets can be dropped off at the office or emailed directly to the CSPC Statastician, Charlie Lenz, at cspc.statastician@gmail.com. If you need help or have any questions about completing your Monthly Time Sheet, please do not hesitate to call the office at (604) 793-7204.
