National Volunteer Week

Volunteers are the heart of the community.

National Volunteer Week (NVW) April 16-23, 2023

This week is set aside each year to recognize and thank volunteers around Alberta and Canada for the time and energy they contribute to causes that benefit our communities. NVW is also an opportunity to promote the benefits of volunteering to individuals and society. 

The National Volunteer Week theme for 2023, Volunteering Weaves us Together, reveals the importance of volunteering to the strength and vibrancy of our communities through the interconnected actions we take to support one another. These diverse forms of sharing our time, talent, and energy strengthen the fabric of our community. 

Through volunteering, we experience our interconnectedness, making our lives more meaningful. Getting involved in various ways, we find friendships, develop trust, and link our relationships. Threading these connections, we come to belong as we contribute towards the same goals. During National Volunteer Week 2023, we celebrate the contributions of Canada’s millions of volunteers: their actions, their understanding, and their genuine concern for the world around them.

Volunteers in the Tri-Region are invited to a night of appreciation:

Date: Tuesday, April 18 
Time: 4 - 6 p.m.
Location: Parkland Hall, Heritage Park-5100 41 Ave, Stony Plain

The evening will be a relaxed gathering for volunteers to drop in, mingle, and enjoy snacks and live music.

We will have snack wraps, fruit, veggies, and beverages available for the first 350 volunteers to arrive. We are also thrilled that Steve Newsome will be performing a live set from 4:45 pm to 5:30 pm. To learn more about Steve, please check out his bio
