The local Heart and Stroke Foundation is hoping to tap into the volunteer spirit of Red Deer.
They are in need of volunteers for committees, events and the big fundraising drive, heart month in February.
The foundation is dedicated to advocacy, education and funding the research of heart disease and stroke.
The local chapter needs volunteers for the heart and stroke golf classic committee. The golf tournament is held during the summer and has raised more than $550,000 over the 23 years of its run.
The heart’s desire ladies gala also needs committee members, an event about dressing up and supporting the charity.
In February, the foundation needs volunteers to sell paper hearts and merchandise at Bower Place Shopping Centre, XXX. Two volunteers per shift are needed for three days that month. On Feb. 2 and 3, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Feb. 4 form 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.
