Special Day Time Workshop for New Volunteers & those who work weekends
The Toronto Feral Recovery Centre is in desperate need of new volunteers to help operate the Centre a few days a week. Since volunteers must first be trained, we are hosting a special day time workshop to allow those who work on weekends to attend and become volunteers.
This special workshop will be held Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 at 1:00pm at the Feral Recovery Centre (Progress Ave. near McCowan Station) in Scarborough.
If you know anyone that needs to take the workshop or would like to volunteer and cannot make our usual Saturday workshops, please share this with them.
Cost: $15.00 for colony caretakers. Coalition volunteers are free of charge.
To register, please go to our registration page here.
Movie Night Fundraiser!
To help raise funds to cover the costs of of running the Recovery Centre, TFCP will be running a monthly fundraiser Movie Night.
Thursday, Sept. 19th will also be our first Movie Night and Social Get Together. Doors open at 7:00 pm with movie starting around 7:30 pm. For the first night we have had some requests for Cat City as many have not seen it and perhaps we can talk a little about how far we have all come in such a short time since it was made.
Please RSVP on our Facebook Event page, so we can know roughly how many people to expect.
If you don’t have Facebook, you can RSVP by emailing Roxanne at email@example.com. Anyone willing to help with running this event is more than welcome!
All profit after expenses will be donated to the Recovery Centre.
We are hoping to run this movie night monthly on the 3rd Thursday of each month in between clinic nights. We’ll try to show mostly uplifting films, to keep all our spirits buoyed.
