I’ve been volunteering on “The Show” at Shaw TV, Nanaimo for 8 years.
The people are friendly and are nice to me. I’m the first one to arrive so I set up the studio.
I bring a treat for the crew to share. People enjoy the treats and appreciate me for bringing them and this makes me happy.
Some of the jobs I do are set-up the studio, put together the headsets and make sure the batteries are charged. Once the studio is all set-up I unlock the door and greet the people. I show the guests where to go.
Before the show, the crew gets together and shares pizza and treats. Then they go to their stations.
During the show I operate the video camera. I enjoy operating the camera because I get to learn a new skill and help people tell their stories on TV.
After the show is over the crew cleans up the studio and puts things away. I usually get a ride home afterwards because it is too late to take the bus.
I love volunteering at Shaw TV because all of the staff and crew are very nice and love me very much.
I recommend volunteering at Shaw TV because the people are nice, it’s fun and I get to learn TV production skills.
Volunteering at Shaw TV changed my life because supporting other people, working with everybody and the people are friendly and nice.
