You’re famous, Ildiko.
Thank you to our Tax Volunteers!
We are lucky to have three highly skilled and experienced Volunteers who have supported the clients of Silver Threads for many years. This year they adapted to challenges with COVID by providing the service by phone. Over 150 Income Tax Returns for 2020 were filed. We appreciate their dedication and efficiency! It was a relief for so many to be able to take care of this often dreaded task while staying safe at home! Thank you Narender, Ted and Frank! You did an outstanding job once again! ...

Volunteer Recognition Week!
Joyce has continued to come in weekly to the Saanich Centre throughout this challenging year to re-shelve and sort our library books and puzzles. An avid puzzler and reader, Joyce has kept our library ready to help occupy folks in these COVID times. One of our best laughs was over a note on a returned puzzle she was re-shelving, “Sorry, one piece missing , eaten by the dog!”
Thank you to Joyce and all our volunteers! ... See MoreSee Less
Volunteer Recognition Week!
Silver Threads Service is a charitable organization led and supported by a Board of Directors. The Board are volunteers who give their time, skills and expertise to set the vision and provide oversight for STS. We are pleased to welcome the newest Board Member, Twyla Johnson. Twyla has a nursing background in public health and community care nursing in Canada and the US. She manages Pacific Health Services (formally We Care), and you may recognize her as a 5-year sponsor of our Christmas events. She also sits on the Board of Safe Care BC; we are glad to have her on our team! Thank you to Twyla and all our volunteers! ... See MoreSee Less
I am happy to help!
Today is the start of Volunteer Recognition Week in Canada.
The theme is The Value of One. The Power of Many.
This year has been a year like no other - and we have kept going, pivoted our services and had a wonderful group of Volunteers helping along the way. There were 52 individuals who contributed over 3,100 hours this year, from our Board Leadership, to delivering meals, to preparing taxes, and so much more. We appreciate and are so grateful for each of you! Thank you to all our Volunteers!
From the Staff of Silver Threads Service.
