National Volunteer Week: Celebrate the Value of Volunteering

 

 

April 15-21 is National Volunteer Week, a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers and recognize their contributions 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. 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 creates social and economic value for all. 

As a special way to thank the wonderful volunteers of the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington, we have an exciting activity planned for the month of April...

When a Bingo is called, volunteers will be asked to take a photo of themselves with their winning card, with the numbers visible for verification. Verified winners will be announced and then the winnning combination will be closed. Once a BINGO card has won it is no longer eligble to play. When all winning combinations have been called, winners will be announced and prizes will be available for pick-up or or mail.
