National Volunteer Week

Westminster Canterbury Richmond celebrated National Volunteer Week from April 15-21, 2018.  This week was designated to thank volunteers across the nation who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in the community.  

On Tuesday, April 17, we celebrated our resident volunteers with a fun and delicious dessert party. These residents gave more than 25,000 hours in 2017 in areas including Pastoral Care, Dining Services, Floor Representatives, Flower Room, Forum, Historical Records, Libraries, Performing Arts, Recreation, Recycling, Technology, The Shops on Main, Arts and Crafts and Wellness.  Others volunteered as Art Angels, Breakfast Buddies in the Child Development Center, Gift Shop Associates, Sewing Group, Small Crafts and The Salvation Army Project.

Our non-resident volunteers gave more than 9,215 hours in 2017 in addition to our resident hours.  The Summer Teen Program had more than 30 teens who volunteered across campus – playing games, washing cars and helping residents and staff with various projects. We will celebrate our non-resident volunteers on Tuesday, May 22, with a reception and an invitation to attend the performance of An Evening with Patsy Cline in Westminster Canterbury’s Sara Belle November Theater.  If you are a volunteer, please come to enjoy this special time in which we honor you for your dedicated commitment to our special community.

We are so grateful for our many volunteers who help everyone to live life well at Westminster Canterbury Richmond.  If you are looking for a fulfilling and meaningful volunteer opportunity, please visit www.wcrichmond.orgor contact Kathy Morton at (804) 261-5201.
