Every year in April, Volunteer Lethbridge joins other organizations across the country, including Volunteer Canada, to celebrate National Volunteer Week.
This is a special time of year where we dedicate the entire week to recognizing and celebrating the amazing and wonderful work of the volunteers in our community, city and nation.
We invite community members, businesses, and member agencies to host activities or events that: a) celebrate and recognize current volunteers; b) attract potential new volunteers; or c) bring attention to your cause and programs. We will promote the events and may drop by to add our support.
