During National Volunteer Week, Volunteer Campbell River will be celebrating and recognizing the incredible efforts of local volunteers.
To give you an example of just how important the contributions of volunteers are to our member agencies, look at the Campbell River Girl Guides of Canada (GGC), an organization built on the dedication and skills of volunteers.
GGC participated in a survey designed by Volunteer Campbell River. GGC volunteers empower girls and themselves with the skills and abilities to face challenges with confidence.
Their goal is to increase girls’ awareness about the wider world, promote cross-cultural understanding and educate girls on global issues that will inspire them to take action.
In Campbell River, the absence of volunteers would affect over 200 girls, who, as a result, would not be as well prepared as they could be to face the challenges in their lives.
Volunteers, come and join the volunteer appreciation celebration on Saturday, April 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Campbell River Common Shopping Centre.
Volunteer Campbell River is hosting the event. Meet your fellow volunteers and learn about some of the local member agencies and what they have to offer.
There will be free snacks and drinks, volunteer appreciation gifts and a volunteer raffle.
