Each year, National Volunteer Week takes place in April to thank millions of Canadian volunteers. In celebration of this event, CTN put forward a nomination to recognize Jacqui as one of our most outstanding volunteers for her tireless efforts in working with CTN's Family Engagement Council.
As a selected recipient of the Award, Jacqui was invited by Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua and Members of Council to join 80 volunteers in a special ceremony at City Hall to thank them for their exceptional contributions and positive impact on the well-being of their community.
We thank Jacqui for her energy and commitment to making a difference as we strive to build brighter futures together for kids with multiple special needs.
