Newsletter aims to ‘keep in touch’ with Beacon volunteers
In response to Beacon volunteers’ request for more communication about what’s happening across Beacon’s many programs and services, we’ve launched a quarterly newsletter.
In Touch: Beacon Volunteer News is dedicated to our amazing volunteers and the work they do to help people and improve lives in our community.
The first edition was recently emailed to our volunteer team. If you didn’t get it, hard copies are available at the SHOAL Centre — or you can click here to read it (in this website’s News & Publications Newsletters section, under About Us).
