National Volunteer Week

Volunteer Appreciation: April 24 to 30, 2022

Volunteers are the heart of the community.

Join the City of Spruce Grove, Town of Stony Plain, Parkland County, and the Parkland Area Volunteer Action Committee (PAVAC) this National Volunteer Week for a celebration of community stewardship. The nationwide campaign will take place from April 24 to April 30. 

This year’s National Volunteer Week theme is ‘Volunteering is Empathy in Action’. Volunteering develops empathy and connects people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences; it can build our capacity to work collectively and contribute to a vibrant, inclusive society. The local campaign will celebrate the contributions of our region’s volunteers and share information on how we can all work toward a more inclusive and connected community.

Local volunteers are invited to a volunteer appreciation celebration at Heritage Park on April 28 from 3:30-6:30 p.m. The celebration will be a relaxed gathering for volunteers to drop-in to mingle and pick up a special gift of appreciation. The event is free, but registration is required to receive a gift, and quantities are limited to the first 350 registrants. Organizations and volunteers can pre-register to receive a gift  beginning March 29.

Volunteers unable to attend the event will also have the chance to pick up a gift from Wabamun Town Office or Spruce Grove FCSS on April 26.
