A Volunteer by any other name
It was 7:30am on Wednesday and I was on a conference call meeting for the WoodGreen Foundation Board. Just 30 minutes later, our volunteers for the Audit & Finance committee were beginning a 2 hour meeting.
I'm always blown away at how busy, busy leaders will find the time, energy, and focus to give back to the community by serving on a Board or Committee. Far from the spotlight, most of the work of a senior volunteer is detailed and deep - it's critical to WoodGreen's success.
So whether it's at 7:30am or 7:30pm, here's thanks to you, WoodGreen volunteers, for giving your time and talent to making opportunity for our Toronto neighbours.
