CMHA Celebrates National Volunteer Week

CMHA Grey Bruce volunteers play a crucial role in our organization and our community. Without the dedication of volunteers, many programs offered by our branch would not be possible.

That’s why from April 7-13, CMHA Grey Bruce joins organizations across the country in celebrating Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

Volunteering can take many forms. At CMHAs across the country, volunteers are found working on special projects or programs, within fundraising activities such as Ride Don’t Hide, or serving on local boards. All of these activities help improve quality of life for individuals and families who are affected by mental health issues.

At CMHA Grey Bruce volunteers help by supporting our programs and services throughout the year. Volunteers assist in a variety of ways, and we are so thankful for their support! Here are some of the ways that volunteers have helped:

  • Volunteer committees to run our special events such as; Ride Don’t Hide, Teddy Bear Picnic, Kids Help Phone Walk and our newest event we held in March, with the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni.
  • Assist with our Food Forest, Community Gardens, Youth Programs, Let’s Talk, and FAN Club
  • Assist with fundraising initiatives and organizing/supporting other events

From all of us at CMHA Grey Bruce, thank you to the amazing volunteers we work with every day. We truly appreciate your dedication in helping us work towards good mental health for all.
