Our volunteers do anything and everything for Alzheimer’s

NVW 2017

April 25, 2017 – National Volunteer Week is April 23-29, 2017.

Our volunteers contribute over 18,000 volunteer hours annually, putting their time and energy towards making our vision of a more dementia-friendly society a reality. Nothing we accomplish would be as effective or impactful without the efforts of our volunteers.
 
Whether it’s sharing their expertise on our Board of Directors, or fundraising, helping out on event day, doing office administration, or facilitating a support group, our volunteers are active all over B.C. and in so many ways. Every single one of them plays a role and makes a difference in helping people feel supported and connected when they are affected by dementia.

In honour of National Volunteer week, we’ll be celebrating the generosity of our volunteers by sharing their pictures, stories and words.

“There’s nothing a volunteer can’t do,” says Provincial Program Coordinator of Volunteer Resources, Stacy Ashton. “My job is to connect people to the right kinds of opportunities for them.”

Volunteers are vital to the energy and success of the Society. Dedicated individuals, in communities throughout B.C., volunteer in a wide variety of activities that expand and strengthen our ability to provide quality programs, support and services.
