  5. Agree to a criminal record review at no cost.

Your Personal Reward

Friendship – with our Elders who may feel isolated and lonely but each of whom has a lifetime of remarkable achievements to share.

Experience – volunteering at Kinsmen Lodge provides first hand observations in a health care facility. You will receive practical experience in executing and evaluating events, relationship building skills in a professional context and insight into a career you might be interested in pursuing. Fun – camaraderie; teamwork with fellow volunteers; recognition events, and the joy of knowing that you have touched the life of another and made a difference.
