National Volunteer Week – April 16th to 22nd, 2023
This is the week we get to celebrate the many volunteers that chose to dedicate their time to work with our charity. They felt a clear connection to our mission and wanted to help us create a world where our families have access to safe and affordable housing.
They are the heart of our work across Saskatchewan and we rely on them to show up for us and their community every single day. This is why we wanted to take the opportunity to thank and celebrate them all this week!
We are grateful to You!
We are especially grateful to highlight a particular volunteer that keeps showing up at one of our ReStores each week and has been coming to help us since 2022. Cheryl has a kind soul and she told us that her favourite part about volunteering is the satisfaction of giving back and at the same time, doing something she enjoys. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!
“Volunteering at Habitat for Humanity helps me help others by participating in raising funds used to help build future housing for people who could otherwise not qualify for it” – Cheryl
Cheryl has managed to do over 500 volunteer hours at the ReStore! How incredible is that! It is an individual like her who we long for to help us deliver our mission. She brings her smile and her talents to work with us and we are so lucky to have her.
You can see from her picture that she is happy to help and she gets to wear one of our cool volunteer aprons!
Thank you so much for all of the work that you have done and for your commitment to our organization, it does not go unnoticed!
Habitat Saskatchewan has many more volunteers that work with us to make all things happen. Our board works with us voluntarily to help steer our organization toward a sustainable future. Their roles are not taken lightly and they put so much of their personal time into making sure we live and breathe our mission, vision and values. It is almost crazy to think that a volunteer could give so much of their time to help in this way, but they do it, they love it, and we count on it.
Every Volunteer Makes a Difference
At Habitat Saskatchewan, we welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, experiences, skills, and stages of life. Fulfilling volunteer experiences begin with matching your skills and passions with our volunteer opportunities.
Whether you’re an individual, corporate team, community group, or a small group of friends – assisting at events, picking up a hammer, or helping out at the ReStore, there are many different ways for you to volunteer. Being a volunteer means you are an integral part of what we do and how we do it.
With your help, whole neighbourhoods improve and completely transform. Through this transformation, families can overcome the barriers that so often exist between their families and better, healthier, and more financially stable lives. We believe everyone has the skills to contribute, and we will work with you to find the right opportunity!
