Dixie Bloor Neighbourhood Centre (DBNC) celebrated its 30th Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony on September 25th2018. During the ceremony, we honoured 429 volunteers who tirelessly supported our community during the year 2017.
Mayor Bonnie Crombie presented the Denise Brown Outstanding Volunteer Achievement Award to Shobha Chakrabarti, who spent countless hours in helping our low-income community members with their income tax returns. The Mayor also presented ‘The Icy Seaton Youth Volunteer Achievement Award’, which recognizes a young person (aged 15-20) for their community service within a 12-month period. The award was presented to Eric Wang, a program attendee/volunteer who fostered positivity and encouragement to fellow youth attending the Newcomer Youth Community Engagement program. DBNC is proud and will continue to recognize its volunteers and community members who exhibit the spirit of volunteerism – A big heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you!
