City celebrates Volunteers Week at breakfast event
City Manager Shirley Hoy will help the City of Toronto celebrate Volunteer
Week, when she hosts the City’s Co-ordinators and Managers of Volunteers
Breakfast on Thursday.

Date: Thursday, April 21

Time: 8:30 to 10 a.m.

Location: Members’ Lounge, Council Chamber
City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The event, co-hosted by the City, the Volunteer Centre of Toronto and KPMG,
acknowledges the contributions of volunteers and the staff that support them.
“Although Volunteer Week generally raises the profile of volunteerism and
volunteers, we seldom recognize the invaluable role of staff that support
them,” Ms. Hoy said. “This event is our way of acknowledging the valuable
contributions of agency workers and others who manage the activities of
volunteers and help them make good things happen in our communities.”

Ms. Hoy will present Mayor David Miller’s proclamation of Volunteer Week in the
City to Keith Pennells, President of the Volunteer Centre of Toronto.

The Volunteer Centre of Toronto is the prime resource in the community for
recruiting and referring individuals and training in all areas of volunteer
management. In addition to assisting many organizations to obtain qualified
volunteers, the Centre actively promotes the value of volunteerism to the
community and individuals.

KPMG is a Canadian leader in delivering audit, tax and advisory services. With
a global network of professionals, KPMG responds to clients’ complex business
challenges across Canada and around the world.
