What would our community look like without volunteers?

Whenever a community is impacted by a social issue, they look to the support of the people to help solve it. These people have been the volunteers at the front lines, caring for others, lifting up those who are struggling and giving hope to those that are downtrodden. The question that now arises is this; who do we look to when these volunteers are in crisis?

We are seeing a dramatic drop in volunteering that has no precedence. Just in Waterloo Region alone, we are anticipating a decline of nearly 5 million hours. This is causing waitlists to stack up on essential services, the loss of many programs serving specific communities, and the closures of organizations serving in the region. At times like this, Volunteer Waterloo region needs the support of our community to make an impact and support volunteerism.

When you support Volunteer Waterloo Region, you are supporting over 160 other organizations here in Waterloo Region that provide services to your community. We are redesigning our services to meet this evolving crisis in volunteerism. Please consider donating to Volunteer Waterloo Region to support volunteer matching, volunteer sharing, and volunteer management coaching on a new scale.
