April 7 – 13 is National Volunteer Week and the city is honouring our community with the following message:
Volunteering gives people a lift. Whether you are helping someone learn to read, play a sport, helping with a community activity or event, you are lifting the spirits, confidence and abilities of people in our city.
Volunteering also gives volunteers a lift. When we volunteer, our spirits are lifted when we have the opportunity to work with others. We gain a sense of purpose, experience and success in helping us getting a job or into a competitive school program, or simply making a difference in the lives of others.
