Meet Judy. This retired teacher and mother of three was born in the Kootenays and moved to Victoria in 1966. Judy enjoys helping people, learning and experiencing new things. While at her grandson’s soccer game in 2005, she met a Sendial volunteer and subsequently became one herself at the Sidney Thrifty Foods Store. Judy has been a Shopper and Phoner and is currently a Phoning Captain. She enjoys the Sendial customers, as well as the other volunteers and the Store staff, whom she feels are cheerful and helpful. The greatest value in volunteering for Judy is the contact with customers, getting to know them and being of help to others. If asked about what she would say to someone else about Sendial, Judy would convey that Sendial is a valuable and worthwhile service; is well organized and volunteering is an enjoyable experience.
At Volunteer Victoria we believe that, regardless of age or stage of life, everyone deserves an opportunity to volunteer.
