Volunteers wanted for United Way events


The United Way has a special opportunity for residents of Chatham-Kent to help give back through volunteering their time and talents to help support two of our community’s largest fundraising events this season: the youth-driven Red Feather and the Harvest Run.

As per school board regulations, all volunteers must be over the age of 18 and have been out of high school for at least one full year.
