National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to celebrate the vibrancy and impact of volunteerism in our community and across our country. Every April, we come together to recognize volunteers and celebrate the power of volunteerism in our communities.

This year’s National Volunteer Week theme is ‘Every Moment Matters’.  It highlights the importance of every volunteer and each contribution they make at a moment. It’s in these moments of volunteering, and the relationships between them, that we find greater purpose and a sense of belonging. By connecting and engaging with community, we come to know our importance. Volunteering matters.  The sharing of time, skills, empathy, and creativity is vital to the inclusivity, strength, and wellbeing of our communities. 

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

Volunteers throughout Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, and Parkland County are invited to one of two volunteer appreciation nights. Both events will be drop-in style for Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and Parkland County residents, featuring music, food, and opportunities for mingling:

  • Volunteer Appreciation Night at Heritage Park, (5100 41 Ave, Stony Plain), in the Spruce Grove Hall on April 17 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (all ages).
  • Youth Volunteer Appreciation Night at the Stony Plain Youth Centre (4902 51 Ave, Stony Plain) on April 19 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (ages 11-17).

Visit the Stony Plain Public Library, Spruce Grove Public Libraries, or Entwistle Community Recreation Centre during National Volunteer Week to share your volunteering moments that matter. Information tables will be available to see current volunteer opportunities and share your comments related to volunteering
