Volunteer of the Year 2019
Pictou Volunteer of the Year Awards
Each year, communities all across Canada celebrate National Volunteer Week, which normally takes place the third week of April. The primary purpose of this specially designated week is to thank and honour people who donate their time to help others by supporting the causes in which they believe. Volunteer Week also serves to reinforce the human values that volunteering represents and increases awareness of the vital importance of volunteerism to our communities.
