What is Volunteer Abbotsford?
Volunteer Abbotsford is a Not for Profit Society that evolved from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and the Spirit of BC Initiative. The Society is overseen by a volunteer elected Board of Directors and along with supplying volunteers to various community events, Volunteer Abbotsford reaches out to other community Not for Profit Societies to promote and host seminars and workshops to help strengthen and educate these Societies with the partnership0 of Volunteer BC.
Volunteer Abbotsford has an ongoing contract with the Abbotsford Centre to provide volunteer hosts for the variety of events and shows throughout the year. The Volunteer Abbotsford Society is sponsored by First West Credit Union (Envision Credit Union) and along with the funds donated, Volunteer Abbotsford gives back to the community with not only their time but a large portion of their funds to the “Full Cupboard” program through the Abbotsford Food Bank.
