National Volunteer Week, from April 6 to 12, is an opportunity to thank the thousands of volunteers who donate their time in various sectors across Saskatchewan.
Each year, 140,000 volunteers nationwide selflessly dedicate their time, energy and passion to help the Heart and Stroke Foundation create more survivors of heart disease and stroke. I continue to be inspired by our communities' mobilization throughout the year, and, notably in February, during our annual door-to-door campaign.
Like most not-for-profit organizations, volunteers are our vital partners, spearheading fundraising, advocacy and health education efforts that save lives. I would like to thank all those who volunteer with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, as well as those who give their time to so many other causes.
Large or small, the contributions of volunteers are a testament to the capacity of each and every one of us to make a positive difference in our communities.
Let us all take the opportunity this week to extend our heartfelt thanks to a volunteer.
