Ontario recognizes exceptional contributions of local volunteers within the Nipissing area
NIPSSING – NipissingMPP Vic Fedeli is pleased to announce that this Spring, the Ontario government recognized the outstanding contributions of 47 local volunteers who received the 2021 Ontario Volunteer Service Award.
“The continued dedication that volunteers and organizations have done to enrich the lives of everyone in Nipissing is exceptional,” said Vic Fedeli, MPP Nipissing. “These volunteers devoted their personal time to help and support our community.”
The Ontario Volunteer Service Awards recognizes individuals for continuous years of volunteer service at a single organization such as hospitals, seniors centres and community associations. Volunteers contribute to a wide range of services in Ontario, including supporting seniors and adults through Meals on Wheels, building up communities through local Lions Clubs, and much more.
Ontario also thanks the volunteers who tirelessly and selflessly risked, and continue to risk, their lives to support their communities during the COVID-19 outbreak. The province of Ontario encourages everyone to recognize an exceptional volunteer for their efforts by nominating them for a Volunteer Service Award or the June Callwood Outstanding Achievement Award for Voluntarism.
