Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, gain valuable experience, learn new skills and have fun! Check out some of our annual events and what you can do to help:
Stampede Breakfast- Hold on to your hats cowboys and cowgirls! This is one breakfast you do not want to miss. In 2013 there were approximately 1200 attendees and this year we are expecting even more! Stampede breakfast is a time for people of all ages to come together and share their Calgarian pride and wear their comfy pants in order to sustain the abundance of pancakes they indulge in. We are looking for some volunteers to assist our chef with making 100’s of pancakes, servers/runners with quick feet to feed the hungry Calgarians, line dancing fans would be helpful as we may have a surprise in store for the community (For volunteers ears only) As well as those interested in face painting for the kids, we have stencils don’t worry. Hopefully see ya’ll there!
Halloween Haunted House- Calling all goblins and ghouls! This event is not for the faint of heart. Triwood needs your help with set creation, costume ideas, snack bar and acting. We get together a couple times before the event to get creative and come up with the creepiest ideas you could ever imagine. The best part of this event is that the volunteers take the lead; this is your haunted house. Last year we took in over 200 trick or treaters, some left laughing, some left in tears. Are you into drama, art or just like to have fun with your friends, come join us for this spookatcular evening for the whole family.
Kids Christmas Party- HO HO HO! Let’s help Santa spread some Christmas cheer as Santa comes to Triwood to meet with community members.
