National Volunteer Week 2015

National Volunteer Week, which takes place April 12-18, 2015, is a time to recognize, thank and celebrate Canada’s volunteers. We encourage you to take the time to thank the volunteers who do so much in our communities.

The theme of National Volunteer Week 2015 is ‘Volunteers are part of the ripple effect.’ As noted by Volunteer Canada, “A volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach out far and wide to improve communities.”

At the Halton Children’s Aid Society, our volunteers annually contribute more than 12,000 hours of their time in various roles including mentors, volunteer drivers, summer camp support, food for life program assistance, tutoring and so much more.
