Volunteer

We depend on the passion and skills of our volunteers to guarantee the success of our programs year round. Without our volunteers we would not be able to reach our many isolated seniors through our various programs.

If you’re interested in volunteering, we’d love to hear from you. Fill out this volunteer form to learn more!

Marketing/Outreach Committee Members

Help spread the cheer by creating a buzz around Seniors Secret Service in Calgary and area!  Although we want to remain anonymous to the isolated seniors we provide birthday and Christmas cheer, we don’t want to remain a secret to the community.   Be part of a new creative outreach committee to tell the Seniors Secret Service story through videos, online and print materials, social media, media releases and interviews and special events such as community birthday campaigns.

Secret Santas

Want to get involved but have limited time available? Every year, individuals and groups sign up to purchase gifts for isolated seniors. As a Secret Santa, you purchase and wrap a gift based on an anonymous personal profile of a senior, spending what you feel is appropriate.

Birthday Elves

We don’t limit the gift giving to Christmas only! As a Birthday Elf, you will join us at the monthly Birthday Bee and help assemble the gift bags for the month. Short of time? Purchase items that are used in the birthday bags that our seniors value receiving through the year. This is a wonderful way to give back all year round for individuals or groups.

Gift Sort Elves

As we step into our busiest time of year, we rely on our volunteers to help us sort our gifts to prepare them for Christmas delivery! Join other volunteers for this festive and fun event!

Art Makers

Donate your time to make homemade Birthday cards and Christmas cards – great volunteer opportunity for families, schools and groups of all ages!
