Thursday April 22 • Volunteer Appreciation Night with Spring Basket Draw Prize
National Volunteer Week is April 18-24, 2021!

The National Volunteer Week theme for 2021, The Value of One, The Power of Many, reflects on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by millions of individuals AND the magic that happens when we work together towards a common purpose.  This past year, we have seen people supporting family, friends, neighbours, and strangers, people standing up to systemic racism, and people sharing insights on how to create a more just and equitable society.  We recognize the value of the caring and compassion that each one has shown another, and we recognize the power of people, organizations, and sectors working together.

This year, the Inglewood Community League will be recognizing our many volunteers who donate their time to make Inglewood a welcoming & inclusive community! We will be entering the names of our League volunteers into a draw for a Spring Basket prize. Like & Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and stay tuned Thursday evening for the draw prize winner announcement!

COVID-19 Inglewood Community Outreach

As a Community League, we are proud to be launching the COVID-19 Inglewood Community Outreach Initiative. We want to ensure everyone in our community makes it through this difficult time – healthy, happy and cared for. 

Our goal is to match Community Connector Volunteers with folks from our community needing 1-1 assistance in a confidential and safe manner. If you (a) are needing assistance, or (b) can help out as a Community Connector Volunteer, please let us know.

Until this pandemic is over, there may be increasing need for isolation. We hope that anyone that becomes at-risk and/or displays active symptoms, will enjoy the comforts of home with support from this initiative:

  1. If you need assistance, please ensure you provide us with all of your information to ensure we can connect with the right volunteer to help address your needs.
  2. Those seeking assistance will be matched with a Community Connector Volunteer on a confidential 1-1 basis.
  3. The information provided in this form helps us tremendously – for example matching the tasks, risk groups, and location of people.
  4. If you have generously offered to assist, we will contact you personally through our Volunteer Coordinator Sarada, as the need arises.

Thank you for participating in the COVID-19 Inglewood Community Outreach Initiative.
