Volunteer Spotlights

Volunteer Spotlights 2024

Volunteers have not only enhanced our programs but have also profoundly impacted the lives of our patients, residents, families, and staff across all our sites. Throughout the past year, we have continually evolved and expanded our volunteer initiatives, and thanks to these efforts, volunteers now play an essential role at every NYGH site, ensuring that our services are welcoming and accessible for everyone who walks through our doors.

In 2024, seven of our volunteers have been recognized with the Ontario Volunteer Service Awards! Please join us in congratulating them on their milestone achievements:
