  1. Your link to your Volunteer Database is non-functional. I know a few Calgarians looking for volunteer opportunities this year and would like to recommend this site to them, but am reluctant as it does not appear to be working. Please advise on status. Thanks.


  2. Some of your volunteering opportunities are very old; i.e. 2014. Please update your website to show current or ongoing opportunities in 2016. Thank you.


    • Hi Susan. Thanks for the feedback! The members post and remove the opportunities themselves. We do prompt them to tidy up the postings. I’ll chat with the team here and see what else we can do to remove the older posts.
