National Volunteer Week: Thank you to our volunteers!

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy.  You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.  -- Author Unknown
In the 4 years since our volunteer program began, we have had the privilege of working with an incredibly dedicated and enthusiastic network of volunteer allies.

In addition to assisting with our outreach work at community events and helping to operate our Sexual Health Resource Centre, volunteers have been very active behind the scenes in our library, entering data, making buttons and helping with many other administrative tasks.
And of course our volunteer Board of Directors are a vital source of support and guidance for our organization.
The support we receive from our volunteers is crucial to our ability to provide the level and range of services that we do in the Calgary community.
We are very proud to have such a diverse and highly dedicated team backing us up at every turn.
From all of us at CSHC, thank you to our fantastic volunteers!

Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. --Margaret Mead

And be sure to watch this short video by Volunteer Canada in celebration of National Volunteer Week. It is truly inspiring to think about the huge impact that volunteers make in all of our lives every day!
