Celebrating National Volunteer Week 
April 18 – 24 is National Volunteer Week, a time to celebrate, recognize, and thank our community volunteers. This year’s theme is ‘The Value of One, The Power of Many’ and it truly resonates with where the City of Timmins is now and how we envision our future.

During National Volunteer Week, we are asked to reflect on the acts of kindness by our volunteers and the power of what we can accomplish when we work together for a common goal. Volunteers in our community help many of our social service programs function. Whether it’s advocating for food-security or volunteering for initiatives that engage our youth, volunteers are the passion and the power that make it possible.

“There is no doubt that volunteers in our city work tirelessly, day after day and week after week,” says Mayor George Pirie. “I have had the pleasure of meeting volunteers from organizations like The Lord’s Kitchen, Living Space, and the Canadian Red Cross who are dedicated to this community: To making Timmins a better place to live. I know there are many more organizations who rely on volunteers and I am so very grateful for the time and commitment residents in our city are willing to provide.”

As Timmins moves forward with our first ‘Community Safety and Well-Being Plan’, there will be more opportunity for residents to get involved and give back. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, Timmins.Care can help connect you to a service agency looking for help. Learn more about our ‘Community Safety and Well-Being Plan’ and how you can get involved online at Timmins.ca.

This week, consider thanking a volunteer you know. #VolunteersBringChange.
