Volunteer for a day (with pay) to help the flood relief effort

UToday HomeJuly 2, 2013

The University of Calgary continues to support flood disaster relief efforts in and around Calgary. The university offers all employees the opportunity to take one full day (with pay) to dedicate to flood relief activities until Aug. 31, 2013.

To be able to use this personal volunteer day:

  • It must be pre-approved by your manager to ensure that the day you select is operationally feasible and that your work responsibilities are covered during your absence;
  • It must be used during normally scheduled work time;
  • It must be used as one full day – not divided up over several days;
  • The university would like to recognize and celebrate employee contributions to relief efforts – after your volunteer day, please share with your manager the story of how you were helping.

Register online using the employee registration form, under one of the options available to members of the university community.
