Want to help out? Registration form now up.

From city councillor Jeff Leiper https://kitchissippiward.ca/content/ward-volunteer-call-out

Many of you have reached out in the past few days to let me know you’d be willing to volunteer in the ward. We don’t know, yet, what those needs might be, but I’d like to now start capturing that interest in anticipation of future need. If you live in Kitchissippi ward and want to volunteer here, please fill out the form here. Thank you!

There is also the potential that the City may have a general call-out for volunteers as they mobilized for flooding. If and when that call is made, I’ll be sure to pass that on!
