Recognizing contributions of volunteers

By Letter to the Editor on February 5, 2020.

To work in the nonprofit charitable sector has many rewards. Each act of service is as unique as the situation encountered. Workers are adaptable, resilient, trailblazers, they are people who learn to see the silver lining from every angle.

The broad spectrum of engagement ranges from the most vulnerable to the most affluent.

The sector comes through in so many ways.

Not alone, though.

Looking at a strong community is to look at all the assets within that community. Together we add our unique value to an equation that results in vibrancy.

I acknowledge, with gratitude, the valuable contributions that we all add together to make our community strong. Special recognition to the nonprofit charitable sector, your work crosses all sectors. Your co-ordination of employees and volunteers is commendable. Lives are changed through the investments you make through positive influence.

Thank you to each and every nonprofit and charitable agency.

Thank you to each and every volunteer.

Thank you to each and every supporter, sponsor, funder.

To make a difference is our goal! Everyday, we make a difference!

Your commitment and dedication are noticed. Your impact is great!

I applaud you.

As we approach National Volunteer Week, April 19-25, the theme is: “It’s time to applaud this country’s volunteers.” I invite every nonprofit and charitable organization to submit the number of volunteers and the number of volunteer hours contributed to your agency in 2019. Together those numbers will begin to show the impact of volunteerism in our community. Send your stats to outreach@volunteerlethbridge.com.

With gratitude to the sector,

Diana Sim

Executive Director
