National Volunteer Week is upon us!

Syndicated from: Daily Bread Food Bank

National Volunteer Week (NVW) pays tribute to the millions of Canadian volunteers who graciously donate their time and energy. This year’s 68th annual NVW takes place the week of April 15th to 21st. It is Canada’s largest celebration of volunteers, volunteerism, and civic participation.  Throughout this special week we will be profiling a new Daily Bread volunteer from various departments. Happy National Volunteer Week and a HUGE thank you to all of the volunteers who are so very important in helping us do the work that we do, fighting hunger in our communities!   Featured Volunteer: Barbara Willsher, volunteering since January 2008. Barbara is our top box maker at Daily Bread. She is a familiar face at our box making machine in the south east corner of the sorting floor. You can always count on her to say hi and will always give her honest opinion on the flavour of the lunch. Barbara will not hesitate to call you out on something or give a staff member advice on how to improve the box making machine. She has been known to put a cardboard sign on her chair to reserve it for when she returns to volunteer. She truly believes in Daily Bread’s mission and is here for no other reason than to help out.
