THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS

VolunteersAreGold

THANK YOU from Naturally Active for Life Victoria County Since 2011:

National Volunteer Week: April 15-21, 2018

Thank You To All Volunteers in Victoria County
Your dedication and hard work is what keeps our communities viable. We appreciate all that you do!
“Volunteers Have Heart”
The Volunteer
The Volunteer is one with a heart so sincere
No task too large, no task too small
Who will help with anything at all
Who will be there in the morning light
Or help in the dark of night
The Volunteer, our extra hand
On whose future our Children Stand
Never anyone so dear as a Volunteer in Victoria County!
THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” — Mahatma Gandhi

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. Join Volunteer Canada and Investors Group April 15-21, 2018 to recognize the contributions of volunteers in our communities.

This year’s theme is: Celebrate the Value of Volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections and community.

Volunteering is often seen as a selfless act; a person gives their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return. And while volunteering is a form of service, many volunteers will tell you that “you get more than you give”. From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, the magic of volunteering is that it creates social and economic value for all.

The official poster is available here: Download

The NVW 2018 Campaign Kit is full of tips, templates and planning tools to help you plan an awesome NVW event. Find the NVW 2018 Campaign Kit here!

The official video for National Volunteer Week is here

Watch it, share it, show it at your event. We want everyone to see the #ValueOfVolunteering!
