Volunteering at Honour House
Helping those who selflessly put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe and protect our country can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Volunteering at Honour House is a way that you can help give back to these brave Canadians and their families.
What can I do?
There are so many ways that you can help. Here are just some of the things that you can do as an Honour House Volunteer.
Fundraising and Events
Whether it’s registering guests at one of our fundraisers, helping organize a summer BBQ or even showing celebrities up to the stage at our Gala, Honour House events are usually exciting occasions.
Gardening and grounds keeping. Honour House is set in its own beautifully manicured grounds. The lawn always needs mowing, plant beds need weeding and our plants and trees need some love and affection.
Housekeeping. Imagine a busy hotel with no staff. As families come and go, rooms need to be refreshed, furniture needs to be polished and there’s always laundry to do.
Maintenance. The wear and tear on the house is never ending. If you’re handy with electrics or you have some plumbing or carpentry skills we’d love to have you come and help out.
When our guests arrive they need to be “checked in” just like in a hotel. They need to be shown where to find everything that they need for their stay but more importantly they need to see a friendly smiling face when they arrive at Honour House.
Don’t forget that some educational facilities recognize volunteer hours and can issue credits during their application process. Also if you’re considering a career in the Military or Emergency Services, volunteering is very often looked at very positively when you are applying.
