The Dolphin Gaming Centre is open for business and Yorktown Family Services is recruiting volunteers!

Looking for Volunteers: Yorktown Family Services/Dolphin Bingo Partnership

""

Yorktown Family Services is a member of Dolphin Gaming Centre’s Bingo fundraising program, a fundraising initiative under the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (OCGA) in partnership with the City of Toronto.

With the support of our amazing volunteers, the Bingo Fundraising Initiative brings in thousands of dollars each month so Yorktown can continue to provide mental health and socials service programs for children, youth, young adults and families free of charge.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help support the Bingo Fundraising Initiative!

Are you passionate about child, youth and family mental health or Violence Against Women shelter and support services? Are you looking for a way to make a difference in the community? For as little as 2 hours and 15 minutes of your time each month, you can help bring positive change to the lives of those in need of support.

This is an in-person volunteer opportunity located on-site at Dolphin Gaming Centre located at 1911 Eglinton Ave E., in Scarborough.

If you are over the age of 18, and would like to learn more about this volunteer opportunity, please contact Catarina Rodrigues at catarinar@yorktownfamilyservices.com for further information.
