Grey-Bruce Home & Community Support Services looking for volunteers

Home And Community Support Services of Grey Bruce is looking for more volunteers for the various programs it provides.

Team leader Cindy Zettler asked Brockton council Monday to examine how the municipality can better promote the organization’s programs, as well as putting out the call to attract volunteers across the region it services.

Zettler said many programs are stretched to the limit, including in Brockton, where 178 clients are being serviced by only 28 volunteers.

“We are in need of drivers to and from medical appointments, social and long distance appointments, and meals on wheels volunteers, especially in the Owen Sound area,” said Zettler.

She asked Brockton to consider adding a link on the municipality’s website to the group’s homepage and to spread the word about the group’s need for volunteers in a number of communities it serves.
