Celebrating National Volunteer Week

Midhurst/April 11, 2024 – Warden Basil Clarke has proclaimed April 14 to 20 as National Volunteer Week across Simcoe County. This year’s theme, Every Moment Matters, highlights the important contributions of each volunteer and the moments they create by sharing their time and energy with those in need.

The County of Simcoe is grateful to our 238 Simcoe Strong volunteers, who last year gave more than 8,860 hours of their time to our Long-Term Care and Seniors Services locations and the Simcoe County Museum.

“It is a privilege to celebrate and show appreciation to all volunteers during Canada’s National Volunteer week. At the County and across the world, the sharing of time, skills, empathy, and creativity is vital to the inclusivity, strength, and well-being of communities. We are forever grateful to those who chose to step forward to provide support for individuals and organizations in need.”

~ Warden Basil Clarke, County of Simcoe

The County encourages residents to take a moment this week to share a message of thanks through social media using the hashtags #NVW2024 #EveryMomentMatters.
