Why I Volunteer – Rod Mulligan

I began volunteering after a career of teaching at the high school level. It was a natural transition into helping others. After retiring early because of a disability, MS, I continued helping in the community wherever I could.  A lifetime of teaching qualified me to help adult learners at the Native Friendship Centre in the Literacy program.  I also volunteer at the information desk at University Hospital of Northern BC, telling the public where to go and how to get there (politely, of course!).  Further, I volunteer with Community Policing on the Friendly Phone program, a service which provides daily contact and monitoring of a portion of the population who might otherwise have no contact with the outside world. It is a valuable service and very gratifying.  That takes care of my work week, so I take Sunday off!
