In December of 2020 we at The Men’s Centre in Nanaimo put out a call for volunteers to help us with a renovation project we were undertaking at our office in the Old City Quarter. Volunteer Nanaimo advertised our request and soon we had a line up of generous volunteers to help us with electrical, plumbing, drywall, baseboard and cabinet installation and numerous other general improvement projects.


At the same time, we were able to secure donations and discounts from some of the building material stores and contractors here in Nanaimo. We would like to recognise all of our volunteers and vendors for their ‘above and beyond’ contribution to our much needed renovation. The new look has freshened not only our workplace, but also the spirit of our staff and clients. THANK YOU.
