     Call for Nominations for Outstanding Volunteers


    April 21 to 27, 2013 marked the 71st annual National Volunteer Week which pays tribute to the millions of volunteers who graciously donate their time and energy to Canadian communities. The province of Prince Edward Island is unique; our voluntary organizations do more with less funding, and less paid staff than any other province. Volunteers and non-profit organizations offer countless services to thousands of Islanders that would not otherwise be available. Volunteers are crucial to a healthy, vital community.

    To celebrate volunteers and what they offer to the community, the Voluntary Resource Council (VRC) of PEI is inviting nominations for the second annual Outstanding Volunteer Awards. The work of the VRC is to support and build capacity amongst voluntary organizations in PEI.

    Non-profit organizations and associations in Prince Edward Island are invited to nominate an outstanding volunteer for special recognition. The selected outstanding volunteers will be recognized at the Voluntary Resource Council’s annual Breakfast Gala to be held in October.

    Nominations should include: the name and contact information of the volunteer and the organization/association, the mission of the organization/association, and a description of the contributions of this individual.
    Nominations can be submitted by email to vrc@eastlink.ca, or by mail to Voluntary Resource Council, 81 Prince Street, Charlottetown, PEI C1A 4R3. The deadline for nominations will be June 28, 2013.


    Accessibility Fund

    posted Jun 10, 2013, 9:39 AM by Sylvie Arsenault   [ updated Jun 10, 2013, 11:19 AM ]

    The Enabling Accessibility Fund of Human Resources & Skills Development Canada provided us with a grant which covers two-thirds of the cost to make our building accessible to persons with physical disabilities. We have been widening door ways, building ramps, and redesigning the kitchen and bathroom. We need your help to fundraise the remaining one-third of the cost for renovations. There are a few ways you can do this:
     
    Buy Tickets to See Anne & Gilbert
     
    Campbell Webster has agreed to donate $10 to our fund with every Anne & Gilbert ticket purchased by June 22nd. Here is how you can help:

    1) Visit www.AnneAndGilbert.com to purchase tickets online.
    2) Enter the promo code VRC when purchasing tickets. This will reduce all tickets purchased by $5 and also trigger an additional $10 per ticket donation to the VRC.
     
    Make a Financial Contribution
     
    If you are able to make a monetary donation, you can make a cheque payable to Voluntary Resource Council and send it to 81 Prince Street, Charlottetown, C1A 4R3. You may also donate online at http://www.canadahelps.org/CharityProfilePage.aspx?CharityID=s12217. All donations are eligible for a receipt for income tax purposes.
     
    This project has been a dream of ours for years, so we would really appreciate your support.
     
    Thank you!
