Five volunteering opportunities in February 2022
From operating a camera to gardening, here are some volunteering opportunities to put your skills to good use.
February is dubbed to be the month of love with Valentine’s Day falling on the 14th.
But instead of simply celebrating our loved ones this month, why not consider spreading love to those who need it more through volunteering?
Here are five volunteer opportunities available in February 2022.
1. Grouting of Mosaic art pieces by Friends of the Disabled Society
Friends of the Disabled Society (FDS) aims to meet the social needs of physically impaired people by providing avenues for them to interact among themselves or able-bodied people.
This workshop gets volunteers to help with the grouting of the mosaic art pieces made by beneficiaries.
It will be held on Feb 10, 15 and 17 at 10am and 2pm at FDS at Novena. Each session will last for three hours.
Training will be provided for the volunteers who must be interested in arts and craft. Five volunteers are needed per session.
