Germaine Lalancette Is Also A Volunteer …


Do you remember Germaine Lalancette, the lady who was annoyed with her neighbour’s snow removal habits? Well! Germaine has also been a volunteer for several years for a community organization with the mission to break down the isolation of seniors. The organization is formed of a board of administrators and some 30 volunteers to ensure the outreach service. The organization has no paid employees. A few self-financing activities are regularly organized to pay for the rent of the organization’s premises and some of its general expenses.

The organization recently applied for a grant with the Ministry Responsible for Seniors and Informal Caregivers to fund the hiring of a project manager for one year, in order to develop a facilitator’s guide for senior activities. The grant was awarded, but on condition that a trustee be appointed to manage project funds.

MAVN was selected to supervise project objectives, financial management and final reporting. The project was a success, and the grant of the organization was extended for one year to train volunteers into facilitators of future activities.
