Congrats to our amazing and dedicated volunteers! 
A few weeks ago four of our Bigs received a provincial government community award for volunteering- Ontario Voluntary Service Award for service to our agency!

We would like to thank Frank, Justin, Tina & Dan once again for their dedication to their Littles- they have truly made a difference! And we would like to thank all our volunteers for their time and support in our Littles and Families. We could not do it without you!
