National Volunteer Week 2020

Let's all Cheer for ISGW's Volunteers!

This is the time of year when Canada comes together to recognize and appreciate volunteers who work tirelessly to achieve progress in our local communities. They give time their time and energy to support many worthy causes that align with their interests and values and ask for nothing in return. Across Canada, volunteers contribute more than 160 million hours of volunteer time each month. Last year volunteers contributed over $55 billion to the Canadian economy through the contribution of volunteer hours. In addition to the economic impact volunteers make, their smiles bring happiness and hope to those they serve.

Immigrant Services Guelph-Wellington is fortunate to have a wonderful group of volunteers who support our various programs and services whole-heartedly. Our clients benefit immensely from their support.

Even in times of crisis like the Covid-19 pandemic, our volunteers constantly check in with us to see how they can help. They support our programs remotely and continue to provide assistance to our clients. The staff at ISGW would like to take this moment to applaud our volunteers and thank each one for their dedication. We’re looking forward to working alongside our volunteers as we continue to support the Guelph newcomer community.    

Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart’ – Elizabeth Andrew
