Starting National Volunteer Week!

We are so pleased to once again be celebrating the contributions of the many volunteers in Guelph and Wellington County during National Volunteer Week, taking place April 15th-21st, 2018.  There is not enough we ways we can recognize the incredible work of local volunteers.  Through the generous donation of their time, they create the capacity to operate many essential services.  Their support allows community events such as the Multicultural Festival, Canada Day celebration, Adopt-A-Family Program, and so many more.

Our celebration of National Volunteer Week is generously sponsored by the Old Quebec Street Shoppes.

Here’s some of the ways we’ll be celebrating:

  • Blog posts throughout the week surrounding volunteerism


  • Release of “Caring Community Cards” for our members, to offer local discounts for member volunteers


  • Numerous features in the Guelph Mercury Tribune promoting volunteering


  • Annual Time to Give breakfast with keynote speakers on “Why Community Matters”

Check out our media release  for National Volunteer Week to learn more.

We would love to see how you recognize this week.  Tag @PINnetworkGW along the way, so that we can celebrate with you!


National Volunteer Week is sponsored by Old Quebec Street Shoppes.  Located in the scenic heart of downtown Guelph, Old Quebec Street occupies a unique role in the history of the city—a role which continues to evolve with time. Part shopping centre, part office space, Old Quebec Street provides a charming and memorable experience to visitors; an experience that is intimately tied to its history.

Many thanks to Old Quebec Street Shoppes for their sponsorship and helping “Celebrate the Value of Volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections and community.”
