Thanks to Volunteers

In honour of National Volunteer Week, we wanted to introduce you to The Friends! The Friends of Confederation Centre is the Centre’s long-standing volunteer group, established in 1965. The Friends act as a bridge between the community and the organization, volunteering their time and talents to fundraise, beautify the Centre grounds, and organize impactful programs.Some of their community engagement programs include Art to the Schools, the Arts Scholarship Award Program, the Festive Wreath Contest, and of course the Pinch Penny Fair!

YOU can help support the arts by lending your time and expertise to The Friends of Confederation Centre. Learn more: https://confederationcentre.com/support/volunteer/
