Hello to all of WSAC’s fabulous volunteers!
We want to let you know how much we value all the work you put in to make our centre what it is . In 2019, Westend Seniors Activity Centre was recognized with the Minister’s Seniors Service Award. WSAC is one of the only two organizations among over 50 nominations province wide that received this prestigious award and we received this award largely in part due to the commitment of all of you.
National Volunteer Appreciation Week is coming up in April and each year we like to thank all of you by hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Event at the centre. This year, we will have to postpone that event but we still want to find a way to recognize your efforts and show our appreciation.
We are asking you to share with us your volunteer experiences at the centre as well as other organizations you have given your time throughout your lives.
- What do you love about volunteering?
- Is there a specific memorable event or story that you would like to share?
- Tell us your story.
You may be someone who helps out at the centre every day, once a month or once a year. This could be anyone from kitchen volunteers to centre decorators to committee members to musical singouts. You are all important to us and we wouldn’t be the awesome gathering place for seniors we are without you.
WSAC staff will be sharing your stories and acknowledging your priceless contributions on our website and Facebook page. Our goal is to stay as connected as possible through this difficult time and celebrate the good stuff.
If you are interested in taking part in our Celebrate Volunteers Initiative please send me an email with your name and story. Thanks and stay safe. We’ll all get through this together!
