Perth District Health Unit
The Health Unit Acknowledges and Thanks Volunteers During National Volunteer Week
The Perth District Health Unit is celebrating National Volunteer Week from April 15 to 21, 2012. Volunteers are essential to the Health Unit as they support many different programs.
The theme for National Volunteer Week 2012 is Volunteers: Passion. Action. Impact. National Volunteer Week is a week-long celebration whereby registered charities, not-for-profit organizations and volunteer centres from all across Canada pause to recognize and thank their volunteers.
“Here at the Health Unit we are fortunate to have so many different volunteers share their time and skills in beneficial ways,” says Dr. Miriam Klassen, Medical Officer of Health. “We are grateful for the ways in which each of our volunteers contributes to our mission of promoting health, protecting health, and preventing disease in Perth County.”
