April 23-29 is known as National Volunteer Appreciation Week and Covenant House Vancouver would like to send a big "Thank you" to all our Volunteers! This year’s theme is “Volunteering, Eh?” and this couldn’t be truer. Covenant House volunteers provide our youth and staff much needed support and we simply couldn’t provide the services we do without them.
Covenant House Vancouver Volunteers have:
-Donated 11,399 hours of their time last fiscal year (equivalent to 5 full time staff members)
-Thank-a-Thon volunteers helped us thank 13,000 donors this past fiscal year
-GIK volunteers helped sort thousands of pounds of clothing and household items
-We have had over 244 volunteers contribute their time to our Backpack Campaign this past Christmas
- Our youth Mentorship Program has made 25 Matches in total since the launch in November 2015
-At this time we have 134 regular volunteers
Covenant House Vancouver would like to take this opportunity to recognize all of you who volunteer with us whether it is just for one afternoon or year-round. You share your expertise, passion, life experience and patience as you help our youth to become independent adults and you truly provide Covenant House with strong roots.
We thank you for all of your hard work and dedication!
