The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba is already thinking ahead to February 2012, where they’ll need about 5,000 volunteer canvassers.
The annual door-to-door campaign will coincide with Heart Month and aims to raise $695,000 for the foundation throughout Manitoba.
“We need to secure canvassers in the fall in order to be able to determine routes, send out canvasser kits, and prepare for the campaign far in advance,” said Kristin Bergen, door-to-door provincial program manager.
Available volunteer positions include canvasser, kit captain, area coordinator, and zone chair.
In the Winnipeg region alone, the Heart and Stroke Foundation hopes to raise $300,000.
