April 12-18th is known as National Volunteer Appreciation Week and Covenant House Vancouver would like to send a big "Thank you" to all our Volunteers! This week our blog will feature all things volunteer related including wonderful notes from our youth, a poem and other great volunteer experiences.
Covenant House Vancouver Volunteers have:
-Donated 10,917.5 hours of their time last fiscal year (equivalent to 6 full time staff members)
-Thank-a-Thon volunteers helped us thank 6812 donors this past fiscal year
-GIK volunteers helped sort thousands of pounds of clothing and household items
- We have had over 800 volunteer hours contributed to our Backpack campaign this past Christmas
-At this time we have 126 regular volunteers
Covenant House Vancouver would like to take this opportunity to recognize all of you who volunteer with us whether it be just for one afternoon or year-round. You share your expertise, passion, life experience and patience as you help our youth to become independent adults and we truly could not do it without you.
We thank you for all of your hard work and dedication!
