National Volunteer Week - a win win for the volunteers and the people they meet with

By Staff

April 15th, 2024



This is National Volunteer Week (NVW) – a dedicated week to celebrate the importance and contributions volunteers make in
shaping and impacting our community.

The theme Every Moment Matters, highlighting that the sharing of time, skills, empathy, and creativity is vital to all our organizations and builds inclusivity, strength, and wellbeing in our communities.

The staff at Community Development Halton (CDH) and Volunteer Halton extend their heartfelt thanks to each volunteer in our community as well as to those who lead volunteers, in paid and unpaid roles.  Volunteers are fundamental to meeting this challenging moment.

Volunteers across Halton Region, committing their support to increase our collective efforts and impact, help contribute exponentially to quality of life we all strive for.

This week, CDH and Volunteer Halton will honour some amazing volunteers at events in Burlington and Milton. Today please join us in celebrating the contributions
of volunteers who are receiving a Cheers to Volunteers award!
