Celebrating Our Volunteers
Beacon Community Services hosted its annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on April 28 at the SHOAL Centre. There are over 500 volunteers that provide services to the residents of the Saanich Peninsula and Greater Victoria; over half of those volunteers showed up at the banquet to be honoured and treated to a buffet lunch and dessert.
76 volunteers were recognized for their years of service to Beacon – and 14 of them have been volunteering with Beacon for 20 years or more.
Beacon was founded by a group volunteers over 40 years ago, and the organization today continues to be largely supported by the work of volunteers across multiple program areas.
From the bottom of our hearts, we are so grateful for everything they do.
