Thank you to our volunteers!

04/04/16

April celebrates National Volunteer Week across Canada from April 10-16, but here at the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO), we take the whole month to celebrate our volunteers. It’s a time when we step back and thank our volunteers for the great contributions they make to CASO, and to remind ourselves of how lucky we are to have them.

CASO’s volunteers help by driving children all over the city; to and from school, appointments, events, camps and whatever else they need. Perhaps their most important role is driving children and youth to and from visits with their families. It goes without saying that providing children and youth with that type of mobility gives their lives the flexibility and stability that they really need, and that so many others take for granted.

We also have people volunteering to tutor and mentor our children and youth, and others who help out with our Head Start nursery program, teaching children all the basics while providing them with a caring and loving environment.

These are just a few of the functions our volunteers do for us every day. Each person who volunteers at CASO is an invaluable member of our team and we can’t imagine life without them.

Thank you to our volunteers and to all who donate their time to help their community!
