National Volunteer Week 2020

posted by Scott Williams

 

It's time to applaud this country's volunteers.

 

 

National Volunteer Week is April 19-25, 2020. KW Counselling Services is proud, and grateful to celebrate the many volunteers who help make our agency what it is.

In the last year, we have had 50 volunteers donate their time and talent! This includes our volunteer Board of Directors, the many professionals who volunteer at our weekly Walk In Counselling Clinic both as counsellors and intake workers, and our Fundraising Events Committee who work hard to create events like our 80s Dance Party.

At our Walk In Counselling Clinic in 2019, our 27 psychotherapist volunteers saw 645 clients and provided 668 hours of counselling!  Our six intake worker volunteers met with over 300 clients and provided 312 hours of service.

We are pleased to announce that the winner of our Volunteer of the Year Award is Sonya Anderson. Sonya has been volunteering with us since 2015; first on the Jeans ‘n Scrubs event committee, and then on our Fundraising Events Committee. This award will be presented later this year at our Annual General Meeting.

 

Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers who work with us. We couldn’t do nearly as much for our community without your help.  Our deepest gratitude from everyone at KW Counselling Services.
