The Mobile Work Crew can often be seen out and about Vanderhoof cutting lawn during the summer months to hanging Christmas lights come winter.

Mark Cormack, program manager of the Community Living Programs assists with adult and children community members seeking work that have minimal developmental delays.

“We take on about 16 to 18 clients throughout the year,” said Cormack. “We determine what our volunteers are capable of doing in order for us to assign them a job.”

During the fall volunteers head out around the town to help with loose end jobs.

This summer required many of the volunteers to assist with cutting and storing firewood in preparation for the winter.

“Gulbranson Logging has been an instrumental help with providing wood and storage for us,” said Cormack.

 

If you acquire the assistance of the crew contact Mark Cormack at: 250-567-9205
