2018 Volunteers Are Stars

By Keith Yee in Volunteers on April 27, 2018

Congratulations to RFB Volunteers Arlene and Margaret (left and right, respectively, with RFB Volunteer Coordinator Stephanie in the centre) for their nominations at the Richmond Cares Richmond Gives Volunteers are Stars gala last week!

Volunteers are Stars is a celebration of Richmond’s volunteer spirit.  The nominations are a great honour, and recognize the nominees’ vital impact in our community.

Arlene and Margaret certainly have a vital impact at the Richmond Food Bank.  Arlene cooks lunches for our volunteers on Tuesdays, serves breakfasts at one of our school meals, and helps out at our Thursday evening distribution.  Margaret sorts donations on Mondays and is the team captain and manager of our volunteers’ dragon boat team.  They both put countless house into the RFB and we’re grateful for their hard work and warm hearts.

Congratulations on your nominations, Arlene and Margaret- we’re so glad you were recognized for your vital work!
