Guyana Christian Charities volunteers honoured

Five members of Guyana Christian Charities (Canada) Inc. were amongst other recipients of various organizations, who were recognized by the Ontario Government for generously contributing their time as volunteers in Ontario.

The Ontario Volunteer Service Awards are an important way to recognize volunteers who have provided service over many years by helping to build safe, caring and vital communities, and by donating their time to help others. These awards are given to people who volunteer their time to a single organization for several years.

Below is the MPP for Scarborough-Rouge River along with GCC members who were honored for their services at the 2011 Ontario Volunteer Service Awards held on March 27, 2011.

Volunteers play a very important role in our quality of life.  GCC offers many opportunities for interested individuals who would like to become part of its volunteer team. If you enjoy helping others, you may want to join our several standing committees. These committees meet as needed, to give consideration to matters pertaining to the organization; plan upcoming initiatives including our four yearly major fundraising events; and provide recommendations and direction that are consistent with the organization’s mission to get involved. There are many ways you can be involved — please do.

For information about the various committees, kindly contact Elizabeth Abdool (President)  416-912-6814.  Toronto.

    That’s very nice, we should appreciate people involved in charity events, because they are great characters. They dedicate most of their time to help others, thing not so easy if you’d ask me. I’m sure that if this would happen in N.Y. Yuri Mintskovsky
    would be one of the people receiving an award.
