New initiative to spotlight Campbell River do-gooders

A volunteer will be highlighted in the Mirror monthly Good Deeds feature spotlight

Volunteer Campbell River is launching the Good Deeds project, with support from the Campbell River Mirror, the City of Campbell River and Investors Group.

A volunteer will be highlighted in the Mirror monthly Good Deeds feature spotlight. This will include a picture, the organization that submitted the nomination, and the sharing of their good deed.  The selected volunteer will receive a gift certificate to their favorite local restaurant as a token of appreciation for the work they do to better our community. The organization that nominated the selected volunteer will receive a $200 advertising gift certificate from the Mirror for a publicity campaign.

A short nomination process consisting of three questions is all it takes to nominate a volunteer.  Runners-up will also be highlighted during the National Volunteer Week campaign (deadline of 9 a.m. Monday, March 17) and in future promotions as space permits.

For more information or a nomination form, go to  www.volunteercr.ca, call Volunteer Campbell River at 250-287-8111, email: mail@volunteercr.ca or go to the Volunteer Centre at 301 St. Ann’s Road between 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday – Thursday.

The Good Deeds Project will launch during National Volunteer Week, April 6-12, 2014 and continue until March 2015.
