The City of Burnaby is celebrating National Volunteer Week (April 16-22) by thanking all Burnaby volunteers for their commitment, dedication, generosity and selflessness to help create a better Burnaby. All your efforts help to create the city we all want to live in and be in.
This year’s theme, Volunteering Weaves us Together, highlights how volunteering strengthens the fabric of our community. By sharing their time, talent, and energy, volunteers help to weave a strong and vibrant Burnaby, and build connections between one another.
“Volunteers are the heart of our community – not only do they donate their time and effort, but their commitment to helping build a better community helps to inspire others to give back as well,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “This National Volunteer Week, I’m proud to help recognize the selfless people who make Burnaby such a special place to live.”
Volunteers contribute by making time in their busy lives to assist seniors, children and other vulnerable residents to get the assistance and support they need. They deliver groceries to housebound seniors, help to put on the many events we have throughout Burnaby, or help restore Burnaby’s ecosystems. Volunteers go above and beyond to help others.
Thank you again to all the volunteers for everything you do.
