The new coordinator of NeighbourLink would like more people to step forward to join the Christian volunteer organization.

Maryana Komljenovic, NeighbourLink’s community coordinator, said there are around 35 to 40 volunteers active in the organization.

“We would like to see more board members and volunteers getting involved,” she said.

Much of the work involves helping people with transportation needs and providing help with yard work.

Komljenovic said the organization will also work to increase its relationship with Summerland businesses.

In addition, she wants to bring more awareness to the monthly soup luncheons NeighbourLink holds on the second Tuesday of each month at the Seniors’ Drop-in Centre on Brown Street.

While the organization is run by members of various churches, Komljenovic said there are various types of volunteering and not all need to be affiliated with a church.
