A big shout-out to one of our volunteers, Juanita Gransaull, as well as Michelle McGaw (Director of Human Resources) and Clara Costa (Supervisor of Volunteers) who were interviewed this week for The Burlington Post. You can read the article below and also find it in today’s print edition of The Burlington Post on page 31. Juanita’s picture is at the top of the front page!! Thanks again Michelle, Clara and Juanita for your contributions to this article for National Volunteer Week!!
Juanita Gransaull, a 65-year-old retired office manager who’s been volunteering at Halton CAS for 25 years, is among them. “I love children, that’s why I started volunteering,”said Gransaull. She says she contributes about 160 hours a month to Halton CAS as a driver.
Last year in Canada, 13.3 million people contributed 2.1 billion hours of volunteer time—that’s the equivalent of 1.1 million full-time jobs! National Volunteer Week, in its 72ndyear, is celebrated from April 6-12, 2014. We encourage you to take the time to thank the volunteers who do so much in our communities.
As the Halton Children’s Aid Society celebrates its 100th Anniversary (1914 to 2014), we want to take the time to thank the many volunteers who have played an essential role in our work over the past 100 years. “Our volunteers truly make a real difference in the lives of the children, youth and families we work with,”notes Nancy MacGillivray, executive director.
