Ride for Refuge Campaign

Reception House Waterloo Region

   About the Position

Impact Statement
Reception House Waterloo Region is a community – based organization which provides a warm welcome, programs and services to government assisted refugees who settle in Waterloo Region. These programs and services are aimed at assisting refugees in settlement/integration so that they may lead healthy and productive lives in their new community.

Reception House is once again participating in Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly bike and walk nationwide fundraising campaign to help people seeking refuge from danger, hardship, and abuse this fall. All the funds raised through this campaign will be dedicated to our Children and Youth Programming to help improve our newcomer youth’s sense of connectedness, inclusion and feeling valued in their new homes and community which can contribute towards building a positive mental health.

Volunteers would be supporting RH on following roles:
1. Stay at all the start and rest stops and strategic locations for the walk and the ride routes.
2. Offer water and healthy bars to the riders
3. Directing riders to right routes
