Thank you to MA’s Volunteers!

This week is National Volunteer Week across Canada.  While we are thankful every day of the year for the support that we receive from our volunteers, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank them directly.

To all our tireless volunteers who help out every day with lunches, trips, driving, on Board committees and so much more – thank you for all that you do!  We honestly could not do it without your support!

Want to get involved?  Visit us online for more information about how you can volunteer.
