Sooke Region Volunteer Centre has a new coordinator, but she’s certainly not new to volunteering.

Agnes Kossakowska has five years of experience working as a program and volunteer coordinator on the Lower Mainland.

“I believe that each of us has the power and the ability to give. Giving is gratifying. By reaching out to help another human it has a ripple effect of immense positive change,” said Kossakowska.

Over the next few weeks Kossakowska will contact many of the almost 200 non-profit organizations in the Sooke Region to introduce herself and learn more about each organization’s volunteer needs.

The mission of SRVC is “to promote and support volunteerism in the Sooke Region” and its vision is “a community where everyone volunteers.”

Sooke Region Volunteer Centre is located at 6672 Wadams Way in the Child Youth and Family Centre. Office hours are Tuesday and Thursdays 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.
