Parks & Recreation Release

For National Volunteer Week (April 18-24) this year, we are celebrating The Value of One, The Power of Many

We want to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers for their individual and collective efforts that help strengthen our communities. During this difficult time of isolation and challenges, we are amazed by the acts of kindness and courage of many. 

On a local community level, we have seen many supporting their family, friends, neighbours and strangers. 

While most volunteer opportunities at the City are temporarily on hold due to COVID-19, opportunities are still available throughout your community. It is important to know that volunteering comes in different shapes and forms, be it dropping off groceries for neighbours, visiting family members virtually, or volunteering in your neighbourhood and local park.

Volunteers in Surrey

You can also show your love for Surrey and get involved in the Love Where You Live campaign by:

While the pandemic has kept us apart, our will to work together and help each other has grown stronger.

The value of one act and the power of many enables us to thrive together as we rebuild our community.       

This National Volunteer Week, thank a volunteer for all they do!
