Can you believe it? We’re all a few days away to the best holiday party of the year! And we couldn’t do it without our group of dedicated volunteers, many that come back every year, to check guests in, collect donations at the photo booth, sell raffle tickets and much more.
To give you an idea of what it’s like to volunteer for #HoHoTO we asked long-time volunteer Tania Samsonova a few questions on her volunteer experience :
How did you get involved in HoHoTO?
I first heard about it on FB from several people at once, the usual crowd most of whom were among the first HoHoTO organizers
What’s your favourite volunteer position?
I love being at the door and greeting people, a lot of whom I know at least by sight and by name! I also love helping with raffle setup – seeing all these wonderful gifts donated by wonderful people just warms my heart.
What’s your favourite HoHoTO memory?
Totally great photos of people, including myself, taken by Rannie Turingan
Any advice to any HoHoTO newbies thinking of volunteering?
Go for it! You will never regret it. There is nothing like the feeling that you are a part of something bigger than you that does good to people.
If you see Tania on Thursday be sure to give her a high-five, she deserves it!!
