Celebrate! Tomorrow is International Volunteer Day!
International Volunteer Day was started by the UN in 1985 and celebrated on December 5th. This is a day of recognition for volunteers at international, national and local levels. This year’s theme is solidarity through volunteering. Change happens when we work together. To learn more click here.
The contributions of volunteers are integral to the work of many agencies and organizations. The knowledge, support and effort volunteers bring to the service of people and the agencies has incredible impact both in seen and unseen ways.
Thank you to all the volunteers who support and contribute to the Edmonton Social Planning Council.
“Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action. These actions shape and mold the present into a future of which we can all be proud.”
