Today is the start of National Volunteer Week, April 14–20, 2024. For 45 years, DIVERSEcity has counted on incredible volunteers who selflessly support the work we do for people and for communities. From our forward-thinking Board of Directors to the compassionate folks supporting our seniors to the volunteers sharing their tax-filing expertise at our free Income Tax Clinic and beyond, we are grateful to all 240+ of you. Volunteering matters. It builds stronger, more inclusive communities while giving people the help and connection they need. Volunteers benefit, too. You can gain new experiences, improve your skills and meet new people, while giving back to others. Is there a DIVERSEcity volunteer who has made a difference in your life? Let us know!

A small DIVERSEcity delegation had a great time helping @TheCityofSurrey plant a tree at a community treeplanting event this week. DIVERSEcity Directors Lenya Wilks and Kirsty Peterson, along with other staff and friends, grabbed some gloves and shovels to plant a horsechestnut tree at EastView park, as well as gladiola bulbs to help beautify the urban park. When asked by the city parks staff to name the tree, Kirsty and Lenya affectionally dubbed it “DIVERSEci-tree.” We'll be back to check in on our namesake once it blooms!Thank you to Shannon, stewardship programs coordinator, and the rest of the city staff, for making this drop-in event educational and fun, while giving us an opportunity to do something good for the community and planet! Want to take part in helping grow Surrey’s urban forest, too? More drop-in events are taking place in the next few weeks as well as other community parks programs for the whole family.
