Empathy in Action: Celebrating Tri-Municipal Region Volunteers with National Volunteer Week

Join the Town of Stony Plain, City of Spruce Grove, Parkland County, and the Parkland Area Volunteer Action Committee (PAVAC) this National Volunteer Week for a celebration of community stewardship. The nationwide campaign will take place from April 24 to April 30. 

This year’s National Volunteer Week theme is ‘Volunteering is Empathy in Action’. Volunteering develops empathy and connects people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences; it can build our capacity to work collectively and contribute to a vibrant, inclusive society.

Volunteer Appreciation

The local campaign will celebrate the contributions of our region’s volunteers and share information on how we can all work toward a more inclusive and connected community.

A volunteer appreciation evening will be hosted at Heritage Park on April 28. Registration for volunteer gifts is now closed. However, we encourage tri region volunteers to stop by the event anytime between 3:30PM-6:30PM. There will be the chance to mix and mingle and enjoy light refreshments at this informal event.
