April 15 to 21, 2018 is national volunteers week! Actionmarguerite would like to thank all the volunteers who continue to give their time to supporting the residents and the staff in their daily activities. On this occasion, we will be thanking the volunteers in different ways:

  • We will be celebrating our volunteers during our annual banquet at the Norwood Hotel. More than 150 volunteers participate in this event.
  • We showcase the national volunteers week by posting banners that express our gratitude for the generosity of many individuals.
  • We post the individual names of each volunteer indicating their years of service.
  • We invite residents, families, staff and visitors to sign a special banner that will then be placed in the volunteer’s lounge.

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.’’ volunteer.ca/nvw2018

Together, we say to the more than 300 volunteers, THANK YOU!
