I was recently looking for information on volunteering and came across the volunteerhalton.ca website. I found it very useful and will continue to explore it for my own personal volunteering endeavours. As I was browsing the pages I noted that volunteer week is in April… The company I work for, Xerox Research Centre of Canada, is a huge supporter of volunteering and even offers a “day of sharing” for which we can use one day with pay to volunteer in the community. Although I know that everyone here is more than willing to support the community, I think we sometimes struggle with how and where we can help…

Thank you very much for the opportunity to place this and other volunteer positions, on your website. We received many great responses!

Thanks for your past help in promoting our Bids & Bites Auction through your calendar section. It was very successful event as we raised $6,000 and exceeded our objective […] I will want to use your resources again and will be in touch in the future. Thanks again.

I was just browsing online this morning and checked in on the Volunteer Halton website to find some amazing changes! It looks fantastic! I've browsed the site and love its new look, structure, and content, I think it's just great. It's interactive, informative, and very fresh! […]. I hope the Volunteer Centre is doing well and I am sure this new website is just a sign of the great work you're doing!

All the best,
Neil McCarron

Really appreciate the support!

I was just on your website and it looks great. I loved watching the videos of the “Cheers to Volunteers” awards (2009) and the one with Big Brothers Big Sisters was really good. The youth that won the award just had so many great things to say. What a champion she is!

Thanks again for meeting with me yesterday and taking so much time to go through the Volunteer website with me as well as the other resources (such as Facebook) which we can use to attract even more volunteers. With just me and Carly (Program Manager) here […], we are finding that we are doing a little bit of catch-up as well as attempting to make new connections/ find out new resources for funds and volunteers.

Finally being able to meet […] and share ideas was fantastic. We were able to accomplish a lot and thank you for pointing out our profile in the Halton Community Service Database which I was able to update with our new contact names.

Ingrid Exner, Volunteer Coordinator

I really like the website! It is bright and easy to find information. […] Specifically we are always in need of volunteers for different groups, projects and events and it would be great if we could be included in Volunteer Halton.

I wanted to let you know that the announcement I posted on the Volunteer Halton website, heralded more than 40 volunteers for our upcoming Relay For Life event. Volunteer Halton has been a great resource for recruiting volunteers!  Thank you.

First let me just say what an absolute amazing job Volunteer Halton did with the Holiday Open House (December 4th). Great Job!
