This week, National Volunteer Week, United Way of Calgary and Area wants to say a big THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers! Last year more than 55,000 Calgarians donated time, energy, passion and financial resources to support United Way. Put another way, think of the entire population of Airdrie, then tack on another 10,000 people. That’s how strong this movement is in our city! Your support is making Calgary a great city for everyone. You are reducing poverty. You are helping kids be all they can be. You are building strong communities.

The tagline of National Volunteer Week is “volunteers cast a beautiful shadow,” and nowhere is that more true than here in Calgary!

Here’s a recap of what you accomplished in 2012!
