National Volunteer Week is April 15-21, 2018, a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. We should all take the time to recognize the contributions of volunteers in our communities. We tremendously appreciate our 70 volunteers who generously donate their free time to help local families. Their contributions are vital to our success! Please call to find out how you can make a difference by volunteering at the Children’s Aid Society: 1-888-227-5437, ext. 298.

Thanks to Procter and Gamble for their donation of $2,500. It is a very generous donation from the staff group to go toward our youth programming.
