Thank you to our many Halton Food for Thought volunteers for the important role you play in ensuring that our students continue to receive healthy food during these unprecedented times. We are grateful for your support and honoured that you have chosen to give us the gift of your time and talent.
During this year’s National Volunteer Week, we celebrate the value of one volunteer tirelessly packing food boxes and bags for students and the power of many people working together to ensure our students are well fed and ready to learn. We are also grateful to our many volunteers who may not have been able to volunteer this year, but have done their part in social distancing to protect themselves and others. The value of one person staying home helps protect their friends and family and the power of many people staying apart helps protect the community. We are all in this together.
Even though we cannot be together this year to celebrate you, please carry our heartfelt thanks with you by following the instructions to fold an origami heart. We hope that this activity will bring a little joy to your heart and is our way of reaching out to thank you, our wonderful Halton Food for Thought volunteers and supporters.
We encourage you to use any 8”x11” paper and follow the instructions on how to fold an origami heart as a little reminder that we are thinking of you during these difficult times: https://www.instructables.com/How-to-make-a-paper-Heart/
#VolunteersBringChange in many ways. National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate, recognize and thank volunteers, and to create awareness for the important work millions do across Canada!
Here are some suggestions and links from Volunteer Canada on how to get involved in National Volunteer Week 2021 and International Year of Volunteers 20th Anniversary:
- Tell your volunteer impact stories and share a National Volunteer Week image via social media
- Share your illustration or colouring page
- Create your own couplet using “The Value of One, The Power of Many” and what it means to you
