Gigit to Give it
Do you need some help around the house that a local youth can do? This campaign is a partnership between Gigit Marketplace, Waterdown District High School, Flamborough Chamber of Commerce, Flamborough Review and Flamborough Connects. Gigitmarketplace.com is an online platform that connects the community to volunteer and short-term employment opportunities. The goal: to help local youth connect with opportunities to either make a little money or fulfill some of their volunteer hours. For every odd job or volunteer gig posted, gigitmarketplace will donate $5 to Flamborough Connects. Post your gig today!
Note: only non-profit agencies approved by the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board can post volunteer gigs. We recommend paying the current minimum wage for all odd jobs ($14/hr).
Need help posting your odd job or volunteer gig on the platform? Contact us or get in touch with gigit – they are happy to help! firstname.lastname@example.org
Online Gift Auction
Second Second annual Gift Auction is opening November 4th to 13th! Looking for birthday, anniversary or seasonal gifts? We have everything from cooking, camping and beauty, to home improvement, decorating and relaxing. Thank you to local Waterdown donors and partners for last year’s auction: Flamborough Travel, Symposium Restaurant, Pickwick Books. All proceeds support Flamborough Connects.
Senior Gift program
This program brings gifts and joy to seniors who may be alone or isolated during the holiday season. We partner with the Flamborough Review, local food banks and faith groups to make sure every senior is supported. We match generous donors with a senior to help fill their wish list. We take donations to purchase gifts and support senior programs throughout the year. If you are interested in giving to this program, please donate online or call: 906 689 7880
