This is the time to recognize the truly generous people among us, who give of their time, without remuneration. A labour of love is the hallmark of the volunteer. Whether it’s one-on-one or part of a huge event or celebration, it’s the volunteers that take time to learn how to help-and find great joy and satisfaction in it.
Prime Minister Trudeau said: “During National Volunteer Week,, we recognize Canadians who improve the lives of others, and build a better country, one selfless act at a time. “This year’s theme, ‘Celebrate the value of volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections, and community,’ reminds us that when we give our time and talent, we gain even more. We meet new people, learn valuable skills, and broaden our horizons…When we give back, we raise each other up.”
