Volunteer Opportunities in Stittsville

With the winter season rolling in, I would like to remind residents of the volunteer opportunities page on my website!


If you are holding an event and require volunteers, please email me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca and I would be happy to share your post on my website.


Some of the recent posts include:


Granite Ridge Care Community – Volunteer Recruitment

Granite Ridge Care Community is a long term care facility in Stittsville serving 224 residents. We currently have volunteer opportunities available for mature, committed individuals ages 16 and older.


Volunteers help us bring our mission to life – to help residents live fully every day. When you give the gift of your time, you contribute to making someone’s day better, someone’s life more enjoyable. Join us and help spread the warmth of human connection. In turn, we’ll strive to provide you with a meaningful experience that harnesses your unique talents, while also encouraging your personal growth.


The volunteer roles we are looking for at this time include: Friendly visitors/experience sharing, Card/Board Game players, Pastoral Care volunteers, Recreation Programs Assistance, and Meal Time Assistance.


For further information about our volunteer opportunities at Granite Ridge Care Community and the application process, please contact Shannon Guetta, Volunteer Coordinator at shannon.guetta@siennaliving.ca or 613-831-5900.


Stittsville Parade of Lights – Volunteers Requested!

The Parade of Lights is once again returning to Stittsville on December 2nd starting at 6:00 PM!

This is an annual tradition which brings families, friends, and neighbours together to enjoy the beautiful floats and get in the holiday spirit as they move down our scenic Stittsville Main St.

The Stittsville Village Association is looking for volunteers to help with the Parade from 5:30 pm to approximately 8:30 pm.

Volunteers will be monitoring traffic barricades along Stittsville Main Street, and can do so while enjoying the parade with family or friends. Student volunteers may claim community service hours. Youth under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Please contact Tanya Hein at tanya.hein76@gmail.com if you’re able to volunteer.

Thank you for supporting this annual holiday tradition in Stittsville!
