Day of Caring at Norfolk Pregnancy & Family Resource Centre
On June 30, an amazing team of Volunteers from CIBC volunteered at the Norfolk Pregnancy & Family Resource Centre for the United Way Day of Caring.
Several truckloads of unusable electronics, drywall, appliances, etc. were removed and taken for recycling and repurposing. Donations of clothing & diapers were sorted and shelved in the Norfolk Pregnancy & Family Resource Centre’s Care Closet. Pipes were painted and friendships forged.
Marie Mitchell of the Norfolk Pregnancy & Family Resource Centre states, “We at NPC are so fortunate to be a part of the United Way, as well, we were able to create a new partnership with the wonderful people at CIBC. We look forward to working together with them in the future. Thank you United Way, for such an amazing program like the United Way Day of Caring.”
Meaghan Bowler of CIBC states, “The Day of Caring is a humbling, gratifying experience to see your efforts directly reflected in making our community a better place for all!”
United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk’s Day of Caring events will be taking place in Haldimand and Norfolk counties over the summer. “It’s wonderful to be able to immediately see the impact of your volunteer work,” states Brittany Burley, Executive Director of United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk. “The volunteers from CIBC took on several very large jobs and everyone came together as a team to get this important work done for a very valuable community organization. We are so thankful for their support and desire to make positive change in our community.”
