Celebrating our volunteers

From April 24 to 30, 2022 Yarmouth Hospital Foundation and Volunteer Canada celebrate Canada’s 24 million volunteers during National Volunteer Week (NVW).

This annual celebration is a time to thank and recognize volunteers from coast to coast to coast. This year’s theme Volunteering is Empathy in Action highlights how this profoundly human connection is at the heart of healthier individuals and stronger communities.

Where would we be without our volunteers? Yarmouth Hospital Foundation is fundamentally rooted in the generosity and empathy of our all-volunteer Board of Directors and has been lucky enough to be supported by an army of volunteer partners-in-healthcare through all our events, past and present. Our donors and our volunteers are the heart and the hands of the Foundation, and this week, we just want to take a moment to express our gratitude for all of you and all that you do. Through your care and collaboration, we are building up our hospital to be a regional centre of excellence in health care.
