Happy National Volunteer Week!

The Volunteer Factor – Lifting Communities
The theme for National Volunteer Week this year is The Volunteer Factor – Lifting Communities, represented by hot air balloons of different sizes, shapes and colours that reflects the diversity of our volunteer team. Thank you to our 350 community volunteers who last year contributed 23,600 hours of community service. Each day, this dedicated team lifts the spirits of our members and clients by delivering nutritious meals on wheels, combating isolation through companionship, leading centre programs that promote health, wellness and engagement, and providing a welcoming place to meet and connect with others. Last year we had additional support from 77 corporate volunteers who contributed 330 hours of service. The image of balloons rising in the air, illustrates the beauty of volunteers working together, where the sky is the limit in terms of what can be achieved together.
