Department of Medicine Volunteer Day – June 14, 2017
On June 14, 2017, the Department of Medicine 9th Floor staff had their first Community Volunteer Half Day at the Calgary Drop-In Centre. The Department staff had a chance to help prepare dinner items and a working lunch for the next day for the 1,800 individuals who would access the service. Those of us who arrived early were happy to help serve lunch for the short time needed. Our orientation of the Centre revealed the exemplary level of care and help given to the clients by their volunteers and staff. We felt privileged and humbled to be a part of helping our community in a small but meaningful way.
The experience reinforced why we chose the Calgary Drop-In Centre as the non-profit to be the recipient of the donations and revenue from the Department of Medicine BBQ on July 15, 2017. We hope, with your generous contributions, to raise enough to sponsor a meal (see below) and give additional funds towards much needed resources. There will be a drop box at the BBQ for much needed items so please feel free to bring these items to the BBQ or drop them off on the 9th Floor. We are planning a special thank you in return.
