Value of vol­un­teers cel­e­brated this week


This year dur­ing Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week from April 15-21, lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions will be cel­e­brat­ing the di­verse value and far reach­ing im­pacts of vol­un­teers with “Cel­e­brate the Value of Vol­un­teer­ing” events around the com­mu­nity.

The goal of Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week is cel­e­brat­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing the value of the vol­un­teers that con­trib­ute so much to com­mu­ni­ties. Vol­un­teer Lethbridge recorded 23,848 vol­un­teers put in 608,630.7 hours, which rep­re­sents an ap­prox­i­mate eco­nomic value of $14,607,137 to the com­mu­nity (based on a study by TD Eco­nomics in 2012).
