As part of National Volunteer Week, the City of Saint-Eustache is highlighting the extraordinary work of its volunteers. In recognition of these people who have a positive impact in the community, the City has decided to pay tribute to them through a visibility and thanks campaign.
A promotion campaign
As part of this campaign, volunteers will be given car stickers specially designed for them, proudly indicating “volunteers on board”. In addition, all municipal vehicles will be adorned with a complementary decal that thanks community volunteers. Using this same model, a dozen posters will be placed strategically in the city to ensure optimal outreach of the volunteer function.
“With these gestures, we would like to warmly thank the over 1,000 people who get involved, both in municipal events and with recognized organizations. These men and women make an exceptional contribution to our collective quality of life and make a difference in the lives of their fellow citizens. said the mayor of Saint-Eustache, Mr. Pierre Charron.
A growing need
In collaboration with the Community Animation Service, this campaign also aims to recruit new volunteers who would be willing to get involved. “The various organizations are crying out for help in order to be able to continue their services to citizens. As a municipality active in the community, your contribution is also important in the various events organized. For all these reasons, we encourage you to apply to become a volunteer,” said Nicole Carignan-Lefebvre, municipal councillor, co-responsible for the community component.
Volunteering changes lives!
To highlight the 48th edition of National Volunteer Week, the Federation of Volunteer Centers of Quebec is launching the Volunteering campaign changes life! The organization wishes to remind people that volunteering changes lives, both for the volunteers and for the beneficiaries. This act of mutual aid is also an important source of collective wealth for a society. This is the conclusion that we can draw from the career of Pierre Lavoie, who has been a volunteer for over 40 years.
