National Volunteer Week – Pointe-Claire recognizes the work of its volunteers
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are taking advantage of National Volunteer Week to recognize the work of all the volunteers who, day after day, contribute to the community’s vitality.
In Pointe-Claire, there are several volunteers in all areas who are involved with all their heart,” Mayor Belvedere said. “Whether it’s culture, sports, leisure, community support or emergency response, they participate and give, without any recognition other than the pleasure and pride of supporting the causes they care about.”
Pointe-Claire is recognized for its citizens’ commitment to their community, and can count on over 3,000 volunteers to be involved in all the associations, clubs and organizations on its territory, many of which have been in existence for decades! In spite of the pandemic, they have adapted their involvement and continued their activities in different ways, whether it be the young people on the Youth Advisory Board or at the Library, or the volunteers on various committees and organizations, as was seen over the Holidays, when some 450 meals were delivered to seniors’ homes throughout the community.
It should also be noted that in addition to being involved in all our regular activities, our volunteers have turned out in large numbers to support the vaccination campaign taking place on our territory, which we invite everyone to take part in, according to the order established by the government.
The 47th edition of National Volunteer Week is taking place from April 18 to 24, 2021, under the theme of “Bénévoler, c’est chic – trouve ton style sur jebenevole.ca” (volunteering is chic – find your style at jebenevole.ca). To volunteer in Pointe-Claire, simply contact the organization of your choice.
“We congratulate and thank all our volunteers for their contribution to Pointe-Claire life. Thanks to them, we can count on support for the next generation in several activities and associations, enjoy unparalleled cultural development, promotion and dissemination, and support participation in democratic activities.” Mayor Belvedere concluded.
