A clear voice, a caring manner, an efficient personality and a remarkable sense of humour are all qualities of the fabulous volunteer receptionists who work the desk at Saanich Volunteers. Not to mention the key factors of having lots of patience and the ability to multi-task, while answering the phones at the front desk of McRae House.
The amazing people that take on this job have the same shifts every week, and along with a few wonderfully capable individuals who step up to fill in for relief, help keep us in business. Each receptionist brings their own skill set and personality to the tasks at hand. Some are newer to the role and others have been with SVSS for more than a decade. They work with both clients and volunteers, on book drives and gardening and home repair jobs, and commune with local agencies to facilitate food hamper deliveries.
At SVSS we honour their commitment and dedication to the agency and the work that they do. The receptionists are the voice of the agency and the first line of defence; we treasure each of them.
To Marie, Jan, Sharon M, Imelda, Linda C, Judith, Danielle, Sharon C, Marcia and Joan, we say Thank You, we value you.
