Looking for volunteer hours or want to help out your community?
The volunteering is for Nelson Youth Soccer and starts next week for shifts until holiday break. Students would volunteer afterschool to work
shifts at our indoor concession at the indoor soccer facility, of which the money raised from the concession goes toward bursary's that support players that would like to play rep but cannot afford it, a win win situation!
