We will be needing volunteers for our bingos in 2016. These fundraisers provide an important source of funding for Making Changes. Volunteering at bingos is a great way for people to support our organization and to meet other great people.  If you are interested in helping us out, please contact Patti at Volunteer@makingchangesassociation.ca
