We are celebrating National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

April 7-13 is National Volunteer Appreciation Week and it is a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. This year’s theme is “The Volunteer Factor – Lifting Communities”. The Volunteer Factor celebrates and recognizes the exponential impact of volunteers and how they lift our communities. We want to express our gratitude to Covenant House Vancouver volunteers for lifting up our young people.

Covenant House Vancouver Volunteers have:

-Donated over 16,464 hours of their time last fiscal year (equivalent to 5 full time staff members)

-Thank-a-Thon volunteers helped us thank 12,815 donors this past fiscal year

-GIK volunteers helped sort thousands of pounds of clothing and household items

-We have had over 586 volunteers contribute their time to our Backpack Campaign this past Christmas

Covenant House Vancouver would like to take this opportunity to recognize all of you who volunteer with us whether it is 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 you truly provide Covenant House with strong roots.

We thank you for all of your hard work and dedication!
