National Volunteer Week–April 7-13, 2019

National Volunteer Week, which takes place April 7-13, 2019, is a time to recognize, thank and celebrate Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. The Halton Children’s Aid Society (Society) encourages you to join us in taking the time to thank the many volunteers who do so much in our communities.

The theme of National Volunteer Week 2019 is ‘The Volunteer Factor—Lifting Communities.’ As noted by one of the Society’s volunteers, “Most long-term volunteers will tell you, ‘I get more out of it than I put in. I always say that I’m very selfish to volunteer. This is my fun time.’” Volunteer Canada states, “When we volunteer, our spirits are lifted when we have the opportunity to work with others. It’s the Volunteer Factor!”

At the Society, our volunteers annually contribute more than 15,000 hours of their time in various roles including mentors, volunteer drivers, summer camp support, food for life program assistance, tutoring and so much more.

Meet Jim. Every week, Jim packs fresh food boxes and delivers them to individuals and families in need. Some are young adults starting out on their own, others are single parents who need a helping hand – all appreciate his efforts. “I can’t imagine not being involved. I honestly don’t know what I would do without Children’s Aid,” Jim shares.

There are many more stories from the hundreds of people who have volunteered with us over the past 105 years. During National Volunteer Week, we thank our volunteers, both past and present, for their wonderful contributions to the work of our Society. We are proud to recognize them this week and in the future. We could not do the work we do without them!
