It’s National Volunteer Week, April 21-27 and at the WaterWealth Project we know we couldn't do it with out you!
Given the spirit of the week, we wanted to extend a big thank-you to the many volunteers who have come out to support The WaterWealth Project!
Ever since the WaterWealth kick-off, volunteers have been essential to our many successes along the way – from BBQing at our launch party, blasting our messages around on social media, to putting their boots on the ground with our the door-to-door declaration blitzes.
We’ve also had a great show of volunteer support at community events & community tabling to ensure WaterWealth was present at the many Earth Day celebrations within the Fraser Valley. To date we have 116 individuals who have said “Yes” to volunteering with us.
Ajan, DJ, Ryan, Tammy, Graham, Stuart, Candace, Tamara, Calvin, Alistair, Kris, Richard, Nikki, Suz, Cody, Mara, Mason, Sharlene, Scott, Ann, Corie and Ashley are only a few of the new friends we have made throughout the few short months we have been active.
It is through the new relationships with our volunteers and the positive response from the broader public that we can feel confident that we are being successful in building our community capacity to protect our shared water wealth.
But the work is far from over! And we look forward to engaging with all of you this National Volunteer Week, and the next two weeks up until the B.C. election on May 14th.
So please be sure we appreciate and celebrate your volunteer enthusiasm! For folks who are interested in volunteering, please feel free to come out and join us some of the following!
