Volunteers across the region are being thanked for their dedication and contribution to the community…
This is National Volunteer Week.
Louise Howes with Volunteer Campbell River says many community events wouldn’t be possible without volunteers.
Howes says one misconception about volunteering is that it is a large time commitment. She adds there are lots of single-day or event-specific opportunities where people can volunteer without a long-term commitment.
Volunteer Campbell River has partnered with coffee shops to provide coupons for free coffee or tea to volunteers in the community this week.
