National Volunteer Week (April 19th-25th)

Join up and celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 19th-25th), by pledging your volunteer hours with Power of the Hour!

Mike Tierney, President of UPS Canada and Chair of the Corporate Council on Volunteering and 12 year-old volunteer dynamo and Power of the Hour Ambassador Amanda Belzowski hit the streets, with a “guerilla celebration” to promote volunteering. With balloons in hand, and chocolate to give out to hungry Bay Street lunchers; volunteers from Canadian Blood Services, CARD, UPS Canada, Investors Group, Amanda’s Lemonade Stand, Habitat for Humanity Toronto and Volunteer Canada came together to celebrate National Volunteer Week and ask the public “How do you volunteer?”

AND it worked! The volunteer team received 25,000 pledged volunteer hours from the public!
