The Volunteer Services Bu- reau acts as a central gather- Ing agency for all volunteer work in Medicine Hat. Lists of names of volunteers are kept and in what area of volunteer work they wish to serve. Agencies who need the ser- vices of volunteer help call on Mrs. Sangster, who in turn can call upon her small army of vol- unteers. The Volunteer Services Bu- reau is a sub committee of the Preventive Social Services ji Medicine Hat, Director John Millar who in- itiated the new service, clari- fied the position of the Bureau. "It's not here to take over any volunteer work done by other services or service organiza- he said, "nor does it in- terfere in any way. 'It does re- cruit volunteers and assist with volunteer programs and volun- teer training." Medicine Hat Bureau in action worker not over: co-ordinator __ __. nf fhn camr> core i One such project has ten a five week (raining course for teen volunteers.

"We just got on the phone and called around to see what i could get "The YM-YW donated the space. Other people donated mattresses and we put oat a call over the radio for more. We had dishes and donated. "Two department stores gave us towels which were seconds, and the wife of one of our col- lege professors offered to pick the towels up and take them baked goods, and put them in her freezer. "We'd found a youth who was wilb'ng to keep ar. eye on things at the hostel and he'd phone her when he got an influx of transients and she'd bring over the sweet rolls and bread and so on. "Our young worker didn't get eery much pay. In fact, we told him we'd only be able to pay him if there was anything left over at the end of the month. Sometimes it was about Through the efforts of volun- teer work no call was made to city council for financial assis- tance. Yet, from June 15 to Labor Day, over transients were processed through the Medicine Hat hostel. The Bureau has met with oth- _r such successes.

Volunteers have also been found to address Christmas cards for patients in Ihe hospi- tals, assist mental health pa- tients with crafts, and to find homes for those being re-ori- ented into the community.
