This week has been National Volunteer Week, and we here at Sustainable Waterloo Region want to send out an extra special thank you to the amazing volunteer team that is the foundation of our organization. We recently did a volunteer satisfaction survey and were thrilled to see that 87% of our volunteers are very proud to volunteer for SWR and 93% are very supportive of our direction as an organization. For more results check out our website. Our volunteers are critical to the success of our programs, and we could not do it without them, so this year the staff team wrote a poem to tell them how much we appreciate them: To the Dopest SWR Volunteers! It is the week to say to you How much we love the things you do! From fun and funny intro questions To million dollar great suggestions That keep programs improving And reduction targets moving To each and every one of you We tip our hats for all you do… Marketing makes our content glow While PR keeps our community in the know Policy defines our public position And strategy keeps us aligned with our mission HR builds our team’s capacity ClimateAction shapes our community’s audacity While Finance makes sure we operate in the black The RCI team keeps businesses on track So thank you to the crew that ROCKS Your commitment really knocks off our socks You are the best, that much is true For SWR…you are the glue. If you would like to join the SWR team as a volunteer we would love to talk to you! For more information or current volunteer opportunities, visit our website. Photo from
