Thank You!

Seaway News - - National Volunteer Week -

Each year we ded­i­cate a spe­cial time to honour cit­i­zens who vol­un­teer their time and tal­ents to wor­thy causes across our coun­try, re­gion and lo­cal com­mu­nity. We want to ac­knowl­edge the in­cred­i­ble ef­forts of vol­un­teers and say THANK YOU. Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week is when we can all take time to rec­og­nize vol­un­teers and cel­e­brate the power of vol­un­teerism in our com­mu­nity.

Vol­un­teers reach out be­yond them­selves, to en­gage in kind­ness and car­ing for oth­ers. Peo­ple from all walks of life en­gage in vol­un­teerism for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons some of which are: to tackle the is­sues of poverty, the en­vi­ron­ment, home­less­ness, to pro­mote so­cial in­clu­sion, and most im­por­tantly, to be the voice and hands of com­pas­sion and hope.

Cana­di­ans have a rich his­tory of vol­un­teer­ing and com­mu­nity in­volve­ment. The work of the vol­un­teer is es­sen­tial work. Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week (NVW) pays trib­ute to the mil­lions of Cana­dian vol­un­teers who do­nate their time and en­ergy.

NVW is the big­gest cel­e­bra­tion of vol­un­teers and vol­un­tarism Canada has and Vol­un­teer Canada is tak­ing the lead on the cel­e­bra­tions ev­ery year. NVW cam­paigns were de­vel­oped to help or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als from coast to coast to coast de­liver their own vol­un­teer week cel­e­bra­tions.
