For the seventh year, NeighbourLink is organizing a series of events to mark NeighbourLink Week in Summerland.
The community organization was formed 15 years ago and over the years, volunteers have helped hundreds of people in the community.
NeighbourLink Week was started to celebrate, for awareness and to raise funds for the organization.
Mirjana Komljenovic of NeighbourLink said the organization has 65 vetted volunteers.
Many of the calls to the office resource are about helping provide service to our senior population but not exclusively. NeighbourLink’s free services are available without restriction to any age, income or faith.
There are also community volunteers who help at events or functions. These volunteers are not required to be vetted but must be accompanied by a vetted volunteer.
The organization and programs are managed by part-time community coordinator Mirjana Komljenovic and administrative support Brandi Esler.
Programs include, visitor programs, monthly soup socials, the Community Cars That Care program, PRIME-Personal Records in Medical Emergencies, Advance Care Planning Workshops, Great Christmas Match Up, Community Impact Bursaries, Youth Leadership Award and others.
On Thursday, May 23, NeighbourLink will host the seventh annual dinner and auction at the Summerland Waterfront Resort. There are still a few tickets left for the event. Tickets can be purchased online at www.neighbourlinksummerland.org/buy-dinner-tickets or at Maple Roch.
On Sunday May 26, Hope Road Gospel Choir will be performing their concert finale at Summerland Baptist Church at 7 p.m. Donations to NeighbourLink and the Summerland Food Bank will be accepted.
