Volunteer Opportunities for Olympics Vancouver (More Than Gold)

As Vancouver prepares feverishly for the coming Olympics, churches in Vancouver are also playing their part to welcome visitors and friends coming for this world famous event. It is gratifying to know that some churches have come together to provide hospitality through several events.  If you are in Vancouver, or know people planning to come to this beautiful city, share with them.

1) Thunderbird Indoor Stadium @ UBC area

"More Than Gold" is a umbrella name to help churches on the Westside to pool together resources in order to provide hospitality to people coming to watch hockey at UBC at the West side of Vancouver lower mainland. Spearheaded by University chapel and volunteers at Regent-College, the services offered include "welcome desk, internet room, prayer room, chapel, photo booth, pin trading centre, outdoor concerts, and much much more!" The purpose is to extend hospitality to people visiting the city. You can download the powerpoint here.

2) Trinity Lutheran Church @ (Richmond Olympic Oval)

Volunteer opportunities are available here.
