Volunteer Opportunities

Lawn Aerating

April 26 - May 1, 2021

Each year, we rent aerators and aerate lawns around St. Jacobs. Lawn aeration helps prevent soil compaction and contributes to good lawn health. We are looking for a large number of volunteers that are willing to give hours whenever they can. Weeknights we aerate for a approximately 2 hours and Saturday we do a full day push to complete the remaining lawns. If you would like to help us, please sign up here: Volunteer Sign Up


Grand River Teddy Bear Drive

Year Round

We raise money all year long to purchase Teddy Bears for Grand River Hospital. If you would like to donate to this cause - we encourage you to do so at http://www.optimistclubofstjacobs.com/donate

If you have a passion for making teddy bears - we will take those too! Grand River Hospital asks that homemade teddy bears adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Bears must not have dangling strings or objects that could cause children to choke.
  • Bears must have eyes so as to not scare children

If you have teddy bears that you wish to donate, please email us your contact information by clicking here: Teddy Bear Pickup
