Written by: Jessica Dawson
It is just about time to celebrate National Volunteer Week—according to Volunteer Canada: “National Volunteer Week (April 6-12, 2014) is a time to recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s 13.3 million volunteers.” "We need to continuously thank our family and friends for the contributions made to our community. National Volunteer Week only serves as a small reminder to acknowledge the year round commitment of services provided by the members of this wonderful place we all live in together,” says Tyler Voigt, Executive Director of Volunteer Comox Valley.
Volunteers in our community have made significant contributions, and the Volunteer Impact Awards are an excellent opportunity to show recognition towards a family member or friend who you believe has made an impact. Many local citizens donate their time to improve the quality of life in the Comox Valley. Please use this opportunity to recognise and thank an individual for their voluntary contributions to our beautiful valley.
In your nomination, please write brief and compelling reasons to explain: What has motivated you to nominate this person? What is it that makes the actions of this individual unique amongst volunteers? And what impacts are felt due to this person’s actions? Nominations close end of day, March 14th, 2014 and may be made online at www.volunteercomoxvalley.ca; or by Email at firstname.lastname@example.org; or in person at Volunteer Comox Valley Unit C1—450 Eighth Street, Courtenay.
