From April 7 to 13, we celebrated National Volunteer Week to thank the over 500 volunteers at our House and Family Rooms. 

At RMHC Toronto, we believe that volunteers are the heart of our organization. That’s because we have 8 volunteers to every staff member. Thanks to our volunteers, RMHC Toronto is there for families 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Whether it’s activity programming, Family Services support, Family Room support, or serving on our Board of Directors, our volunteers generously give their time and talents to the families we support.

“There is something magical about working with people who are so passionate about our mission. From a friendly greeting at the front desk, to baking cookies, to pouring a cup of coffee, each action makes a difference to families,” says Teresa Tam, Senior Coordinator of Volunteer Engagement.

Help us show our appreciation for our volunteers and leave a “heart” on our Facebook post to say thanks for all that they do. You can also check out our gallery of volunteer photos to see the range of jobs they do.
