Together, we create survivors
Today, heart disease and stroke take one life every 7 minutes and 90% of Canadians have at least one risk factor. Heart Month is the Heart and Stroke Foundation's key opportunity to reach millions of Canadians in February and alert them to the risks of heart disease and stroke. Volunteers are the face and the voice of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Heart Month is a critical time when we depend on you to share our message.
Join us by volunteering in your neighborhood for the 2017 Heart & Stroke Canvass.
Throughout February volunteers canvass by going door-to-door in their communities to represent and raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Below are just a few of the valuable roles you can take on to help make a difference in your community and beyond
Canvassers- As the face of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, each Canvasser visits houses on a specific route in his or her neighborhood and thanks residents for past donations, raises awareness of our cause and collects funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Captains- With the assistance of a Zone Leader, each Captain helps organize a strong team of Canvassers in his or her area collects and delivers canvasser kits, and acts as the point person for Canvassers leading up to and throughout the campaign to ensure the success of door-to-door fundraising.
Zone Leaders- The Zone Leader works with the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Campaign Volunteer Chair to establish a strong team of Captains. He or she liaises with Captains to ensure they and their respective Canvassers have all the materials they need – when they need them – to ensure a successful campaign.
