High School Students Check this out!


Erland Lee Museum

The Erland Lee Museum (552 Ridge Road, Stoney Creek) has an opportunity for students to gain some volunteer hours before the school year ends. They can provide at least one day (approximately 5-6 hours) of work for a small group of students (2-3) to do some work on the grounds. They have mulch that needs spreading throughout the gardens, as well as some light weeding and maintenance of the flower beds. Any students needing last-minute volunteer hours before the school year ends, please get in touch with them. They will also welcome students during the school year if you are interested in gaining experience working in a museum doing tours, helping with events, etc.

They will welcome students from any schools provided they have transportation as we are not easily accessible via public transit.


Mark Preece Family House

The Mark Preece Family House has a program called Thyme4Dinner where volunteers prepare meals for families who are staying there to be close to a critically-ill loved one in hospital.   Students must be over 18 to volunteer on their own, but why not make this a family affair?!  As a family you can either prepare the meal at home and drop it off, or you can go to the house and prepare the meal there and spend some time interacting with the families.

It is always very important to remember that the need for this help is year long and but especially so during the summer months.  Think about doing some volunteer hours while you are off this summer.  It is a very important and much appreciated service and one which will give you as much satisfaction and pleasure as it does in giving support to families in need.

Details are included in the letter and flyer attached.
