On Monday, April 25, 2022 at 11 a.m., Brantford Mayor Kevin Davis will raise the Brant Regional Association of Volunteer Administrators (BRAVA) Flag at Harmony Square to officially recognize the week of April 24 to 30, 2022 as National Volunteer Week in Brantford.
The annual celebration is a time to thank and recognize volunteers in our community. This year’s theme, Volunteering is Empathy in Action, highlights the strong connection between volunteerism and empathy and the building of stronger communities.
“The City is proud to shine a spotlight on the invaluable and generous contributions of the many volunteers who make such a positive impact to those they serve,” said Mayor Kevin Davis. “Volunteers are the heart and soul of the communities they so selflessly devote their time, energy and expertise to.”
For National Volunteer Week, the City of Brantford, in partnership with BRAVA, will host a Volunteer Recognition Celebration at the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts on April 27, 2022 and welcome City of Brantford volunteers to enjoy an evening of laughter in recognition of their valuable contributions. As well, the City will feature and highlight the contributions of local volunteers each day of the week on the City’s social media platforms using the hashtag #VolunteerBrantford.
