PENTICTON - Volunteering may be the best job out there.

From April 7 to 13, Volunteer Canada and the South Okanagan Similkameen Volunteer Centre celebrate Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

When we volunteer, our spirits are lifted when we have the opportunity to work with others. Our sense of purpose is lifted when we see how our efforts have helped someone else. Our confidence lifts when we gain skills and experience through volunteering, helping us get into a competitive school program or successfully find a job.

What lifts your chances to achieve your goals? It’s the Volunteer Factor! The beautiful image of the hot air balloons of different sizes, shapes and colours reflects the diversity of community volunteers. It illustrates that when people volunteer together, the sky is the limit, in terms of what they can achieve.

Each year in April the South Okanagan and Similkameen celebrates our volunteers and their contributions to the community.

Volunteer Celebrations:

April 12 - Salvation Army - 12 Noon- RSVP to Rose at 250-492-6494
