Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon


Thank you to all our amazing volunteers who play an important and essential role at the West Island Women’s Centre. So far this year, we’ve had close to 250 volunteers and more than 1365 volunteer hours; their impact is impressive. They participate in a wide variety of ways including committee members, bakers, event support, office administration and so much more.

On April 9th, we celebrated our volunteers with a Springtime in Provence Volunteer Luncheon. In addition to our members, we are grateful to our board members and our staff who always go above and beyond.
