Reach Child and Youth Development Society (Reach) sends heartfelt appreciation to all volunteers during National Volunteer Week.
Like all non-profit organizations, Reach would not be able to provide extensive service to the community without dedicated volunteers. They come from all walks of life, with different talents and experience to generously offer support to children with extra needs and their families.
Reach is grateful to have so many dedicated volunteer directors on their Society, Foundation and Advisory Boards, many of whom are long-term. Get to know them better at www.reachchild.org.
FINDS Thrift store at Reach would not have been possible without volunteers.
“Our amazing and dedicated volunteers have contributed their time, energy and ideas since it’s opening in 2013,” said FINDS Manager Rae-Anne Schneider. “Their passion for helping others is what has made FINDS successful as a storefront, operating five days a week, as well as in our current Pop-Up formula, with all of the funds raised going towards supporting children with challenging and complex behaviours.”
Currently, Reach events committee volunteers are putting in multiple hours planning the Reach for the Stars La Belle Vie Gala coming June 3.
This is the 11th annual gala fundraising evening and events committee volunteer Linda Edwards shares her reasons for helping: “I enjoy fundraising for Reach because it gives me the opportunity to meet so many amazingly wonderful and generous people in our community and beyond.”

Reach sends appreciation to local individuals, community organizations, business and staff volunteers for day-of assistance at all fundraising events. McHappy Day at South Delta McDonald’s restaurants arrives May 10, benefiting Reach. Come out for free children’s crafts and entertainment lunchtime and after school.
“Volunteers are the heart and soul of a community,” adds Reach fundraising manager Tamara Veitch. “They make it possible for us to raise the funds that benefit children in Reach programs.”
