National Philanthropy Day - November 15th

http://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/news/282475241.html

Unofficially recognized internationally since 1986, Canada was the first country to officially recognize Nov. 15 as National Philanthropy Day, in 2012.

Philanthropy means “love of humanity” in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing your own roots to humanity.

In this sense, every volunteer, staff and supporter of not for profit, and charitable cause – is a philanthropist.

Every person who donates whatever amount they are capable, or who gives time in the form of volunteer hours – is acting on their own need to enhance and nourish the human experience of others.

Volunteer Comox Valley is asking you to recognize National Philanthropy Day by giving back to the community by volunteering.

Volunteers are needed for over 145 positions, from weekly reoccurring jobs to positions at one-time events.

Volunteer Comox Valley has trained Volunteer Advisors who can help match you with a volunteer position that suits your specific needs and availability.

Volunteer Comox Valley also raises funds year round to support their programs and services.
