With snow on the ground across the region, the Volunteer Centre of St Lawrence-Rideau is offering a new way for high school students to earn volunteer hours.
According to a social media post from the organization, students can earn volunteer hours by shoveling driveways in their communities.
If your child shovels the driveway of someone else’s home, you can have the residents call the Volunteer Centre from Monday to Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM to verify the hours they worked.
Afterwards, workers with the organization will help sign off on their forms to submit the hours to their school.
