Volunteer MBC, in partnership with Rogers TV Peel, has been provided with the opportunity to promote volunteerism and to put the spotlight on volunteers, community service organizations, and the programs and services provided by the Volunteer Centre via a special 13-part series titled “i care…i volunteer”. The series begins airing tonight in Mississauga and Brampton on cable channel 10 for Rogers cable customers. It will air in Caledon starting next Friday, January 16th on cable channel 63. “i care…i volunteer” was pre-recorded and includes staff members from Volunteer MBC, 27 staff from community service organizations who are members of the Volunteer Centre, and 38 volunteers who joined as guests to share their “volunteer stories”. Hosted by Jackie Vieira and Alima Hotakie, volunteer hosts at Rogers TV Peel, each 30 minute episode features a specific theme about volunteering and provides reflections on the impact that volunteers have made on the community and on local community service organizations. In addition, a key message shared on all episodes is how individuals can get involved as volunteers by contacting their local Volunteer Centre.


Volunteer MBC offers a referral and matching service for volunteer placement within the community for all ages. This service can be accessed through consultation by email, in-person consuultation at any one of the centre’s three convenient locations (Mississauga, Brampton or Caledon), or by searching through the centre’s on-line volunteer opportunity database. Carine Strong, Volunteer MBC’s Executive Director says, “We are so grateful to Rogers TV’s volunteers

and staff for this incredible opportunity to promote and support volunteerism in an effort to connect all people in Peel to meaningful volunteer roles in their communities.” “Rogers TV supports volunteering in our community,” says Jake Dheer, Senior Operations Manager for Peel Region. “In fact, as the local community channel, Rogers TV Peel works with over 300 local volunteers who help put together community television programming that informs, entertains and engages Peel citizens. It’s a privilege to work with Volunteer MBC to profile their great work and the contributions of volunteers.”
