City celebrates National Volunteer Week

Last updated: May 1, 2024

The City of Burnaby is celebrating National Volunteer Week (April 14-20) 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, Every Moment Matters, highlights the importance of every volunteer and each contribution they make at a moment when we need support more than ever. The sharing of time, skills, empathy, and creativity is vital to the inclusivity, strength, and well-being of our community. 

“Burnaby’s volunteers take time away from their own busy lives to help foster a more connected and caring community for all,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “National Volunteer Week is our opportunity to say thank you to Burnaby’s volunteers for their incredible contributions to our city and our residents.”

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.
