Volunteers of the Month

Every month we feature our fantastic volunteers with an online profile. The City of Surrey is committed to celebrating its volunteers throughout our community because of their amazing contribution in making Surrey a great place to be.

September 2017: Charanjit

How long have you been volunteering for the City of Surrey?

I started volunteering for the City in February 2012. I volunteer in multiple areas within the City but have been volunteering for Fire Services for a year and a half and contribute weekly hours to the program.

What do you love about volunteering?

Volunteering is very fulfilling. I enjoy seeing the smiles on people’s faces when I am able to help them

What is the most rewarding part of volunteering?

Being able to help others while volunteering is what makes this whole experience so rewarding. My greatest achievement in all of this is how I am able to make a difference in my community.
