BC Angel Dresses needs volunteers in Ladysmith


We are a non-profit group of volunteers that collect donated wedding, bridesmaid and grad dresses across the province.

Our dedicated volunteer seamstresses transform them into Angel Dresses that are then shipped to hospitals across the province and offered to grieving families at no charge.

We have dress donors in the your area, who are wanting to donate, however we are in need of dress collectors and seamstresses to complete the transformations.

Please feel free to visit our website: bcangeldresses.ca

Thanks Volunteers!


Volunteer Cowichan is actively preparing for April’s week-long salute to the thousands of Cowichan Valley volunteers who gladly donate time and energy to others.

National Volunteer Week is a time to recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers contributing 2.1 billion hours country-wide. Thanks to volunteers, our communities grow strong and resilient. Even the tiniest volunteer effort leaves a profound and lasting trace.

During National Volunteer Week April 10-16, several events will showcase volunteerism in the Cowichan Valley.

To kick things off, during the week coupons for a free cup of coffee will be distributed to volunteers by Cowichan Valley organizations.

The ever popular Volunteer Coffee Break is supported by local business as a token of thanks and in appreciation to volunteers for their ongoing efforts.

The 4th Annual Leaders of Tomorrow Awards event, celebrating youth volunteers aged 6 to 24, is scheduled for April 15 at the Island Savings Centre.

This event is all about the nomination. The purpose of the event is to encourage nominees to continue their volunteer and leadership activities, and to acknowledge that all voluntary contributions are valuable to the community.
