CANEX helps PSP, PMFRC celebrate volunteers

By Patricia Leboeuf, Petawawa Post

Without the vital contributions of volunteers, the Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre (PMFRC) and Garrison Petawawa Personnel Support Programs (PSP) would not be able to provide the services they do.

Both organizations are once again coming together to hold special recognition events - on May 4, adult volunteers will be treated to an evening of celebration at the Royal Canadian Legion in Petawawa, and youth volunteers will have their own party on May 7.

To help make these events extra special, CANEX has donated $4,950 towards the Volunteer Recognition Program (VOREP). With this generous donation, PSP and PMFRC will be able to host a spectacular event with awards, prizes, games, certificates, and refreshments to truly show volunteers how important they are.

The cheque was presented on April 2 inside the CANEX SuperMart.
