Best Volunteer Activity

IWK Health Centre

Same one-two winner results as last year. You just don’t know until you’ve tried it—volunteering in a hospital is great fun. You get into a certain frame of mind that lets the normally crustaceous get along with many different folks. At the IWK, volunteering requires an eight-month commitment, doing one shift a week. Rosanne Dempsey, coordinator of volunteer services, says, “We meet the needs of the community and of the volunteers. Many students from Dalhousie, who are going to be doctors or nurses, come to volunteer here.”

1st runner-up Atlantic Film Festival, 5600 Sackville, 420-4793

2nd runner-up Ecology Action Centre, 1568 Argyle, 429-2202
