National Volunteer Week- April 10-16

Next week is National Volunteer Week in Canada and we want to take the opportunity to thank all of our amazing volunteers!

Volunteers are the roots of strong communities. Towns and cities across the country grow more resilient each day thanks to the time and efforts of Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. National Volunteer Week, April 10-16, is an opportunity to recognize their hard-work and thank them for the difference they make.

At the Kelowna Women’s Shelter, we have roughly 300 volunteers who dedicate time throughout the year. They do everything from childcare and administration work to special events and social media. We honestly couldn’t do what we do at the shelter without their help and support. Thank you so much!

If you’re interested in volunteering, we’d love to hear from you. Whether you can give two hours every week or two hours once a year– every bit makes a difference.

Call our volunteer coordinator for more information- 250-763-1040. Click here for our volunteer application form.

Thank you again to all of the incredible people who donate time and energy to the Kelowna Women’s Shelter.
