On Thursday, April 19th, we hosted our Annual Volunteer Appreciation event at the London Regional Children’s Museum. There was a terrific turnout of volunteers from across many sites and departments of CMHA Middlesex.
Our volunteers were treated to a heartfelt musical performance by London-based musician Crystal Kirk, and a fun and engaging Paint Nite activity facilitated by our very own in-house artist, Ange Heinonen.
A very special thank you is extended to all the staff who contributed to the evening’s success.
At CMHA Middlesex volunteers and peer supports are an integral part of our team. They are vital in contributing to our vision of an inclusive community with mental health and wellbeing for all. Volunteers contribute to the quality of life of the people we serve and enhance the services and supports that we provide. Some examples of the ways in which volunteers and peer supports serve our organization are through the 24/7 empathetic listening services offered through the Support Line, co-facilitating groups and activities, as well as on-site at London Coffee House and by assisting in the kitchen, and on the welcome desk at My Sisters’ Place.
From all of us at CMHA Middlesex, thank you to the amazing volunteers we work with every day. We truly appreciate your dedication in helping us support our community.
