Thank You to Our Volunteers!
April 24, 2017. As Canada celebrates National Volunteer Week, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) expresses heartfelt gratitude to our thousands of volunteers from coast to coast to coast of our great country. Together, We Keep our Community Strong!
Since Ukrainians began immigrating to Canada over 125 years ago, generation after generation of Ukrainian Canadians have taught their children the value of giving back to our community. The many volunteers who generously work on behalf of the UCC, our provincial councils, local branches and member organizations are a true inspiration to us all. It is because of you that we have remained strong and continue to grow stronger as a community with each passing year.
The theme of National Volunteer Week this year is Volunteering, eh? How do you recognize volunteering in 2017?, which encourages us to celebrate the many diverse forms of volunteering in our communities. Our volunteers have given their time and energy to ensure the growth of our traditions, language and culture, contributing the essential fabric of Canadian life.
“This year, as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, the UCC sincerely thanks the thousands of volunteers who contribute every day to keeping our community strong and united,” stated Paul Grod, National President of the UCC. “Our volunteers are the backbone of our community, and your commitment, generosity and devotion continue to inspire us all. Thank you! Щиро Дякуємо!”
