Hello from your new volunteer coordinator!

Have you ever started a new job with butterflies in your stomach, but with the buzz of excitement leading the way? I sure have! Hi, my name is Elise Holloway, and I am thrilled to be your new volunteer coordinator!

Taking on the role of volunteer coordinator for Jeffery Hale Community Partners and its Wellness Centre has already been one of the most inspiring opportunities I’ve ever had. Being part of the mission to enrich the lives of our community members through the dedication of generous volunteers like you, alongside a team of dedicated staff, is a dream. Somebody pinch me!

Who am I? 

Born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario, I have been a proud resident of Québec City for over six years.  As a mother of two beautiful children, and married to a professionally trained chef, we love to garden, cook, and explore the outdoors. Although life has never been busier, I wouldn’t have it any other way! If you like to know more about what got me here, please feel free to read my bio on the JH Partners’ Our Team page.

I hit the ground running on my first day of work at the community Wellness Centre at Jeffery Hale.  One of my first challenges was to assist the committees that have been hard at work since September to bring the 26th annual Community Christmas Hamper Campaign to life. The pandemic has once again led to creative ways to fundraise, modify logistics to pack the boxes and deliver hampers to homes in need.  COVID-19 won’t slow us down! You can still contribute to this incredible collective by donating, or volunteering your time delivering hampers to join us on December 18th to help deliver some goodness!

Welcomed with open arms

I’d like to end by thanking YOU, our volunteers, as well as the team at Jeffery Hale Community Partners, for your warm welcome.   Thanks also to Amy Bilodeau for her wisdom and years of dedication in coordinating and developing the volunteer efforts within our Community of Care. I hope to make you proud!

Elise Holloway, Volunteer Coordinator

Elise
