It’s National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

April 19-25th is National Volunteer Appreciation Week and it is a time to celebrate Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. This year’s theme is: “It’s time to applaud this country’s volunteers.”

Covenant House Vancouver Volunteers have:

  • Donated 16,000 hours of their time last fiscal year (equivalent to 5 full time staff members)
  • Thank-a-Thon volunteers helped us thank 16,046 donors this past fiscal year
  • We had 1220 GIK volunteers helped sort thousands of pounds of clothing and household items
  • We have had 352 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 we truly applaud all your hard work!
