National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate and recognize the contributions of volunteers across Canada. ‘Volunteers are the roots of strong communities’. This 2016 theme aptly captures the Vancouver Island volunteer spirit.
At the Canadian Cancer Society, we see this theme come to life through our caring and dedicated volunteers and also through our partnership with the Freemason CancerCar drivers. We thank all our volunteers who contribute energy, time and skill to supporting those on a cancer journey. Through your commitment you share hope and raise awareness and funds for health promotion, support programs and cancer research. You are making a difference.
We have a lot to celebrate when we consider the contribution of volunteers. Our community is indeed stronger.
