In honour of National Volunteer Week (April 6–12), CNIB would like to thank its incredible volunteers — we couldn’t do what we do without them.
CNIB has always been an organization of people helping people, and nowhere is that more evident than in the dedicated work of our volunteers. Our volunteer team stretches from one end of the province to the other — and is made up of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians of all ages and from all walks of life.
Every day, passionate CNIB volunteers make a difference in the lives of our clients through their selfless work. CNIB volunteers take the time to support individuals who are blind or partially sighted through peer support groups, phone support, providing administrative assistance, sighted assistance through Vision Mate, board leadership and philanthropic activities.
Volunteers are the very heart of CNIB and they contribute to our ability to provide vital programs and services.
Please remember to take time to acknowledge the volunteers in your community — especially during this week.
A simple “thank you” reminds them that their work is appreciated.
