Caisse Desjardins du Sud de la Chaudière wants to recognize the work of people who work hard to make a difference by awarding 3 prizes of $1,500 each to organizations whose volunteers are recognized in the first annual Bénévole en Or contest.
Volunteers are a precious resource in the community, enriching our lives by making our communities more lively, innovative, stimulating and inspiring.
Whether they're involved in youth organizations, in the areas of sports, culture and social development, or whether they support community initiatives, preside over events, or simply set up tables and serve hot dogs, volunteers stop at no task. They're examples of perseverance, kindness and generosity.
In the words of Donald Paquet, caisse general manager, “In recognition their invaluable support, this will be an opportunity to pay a well-deserved, heartfelt tribute to people who help improve our community, and give them an opportunity to continue to support the organization or cause that is dear to them.”
Recipients were announced at the Caisse Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at Centre des Congrès le Georgesville.
The program originally aimed to recognize 3 volunteers, but because of the quality of the nominations received the jury decided to reward 4 volunteers who particularly stood out.
