Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen thanks all its volunteers on International Volunteer Day

Thanks to the volunteers

The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen wants to thank all its volunteers for their hard work and dedication, in recognition of International Volunteer Day Dec. 5.

The RDOS relaunched its volunteer program two years ago, hoping to make volunteering more accessible.

There are options available through parks and recreation, Emergency Support Services, communications and on various committees.

"Volunteering offers many benefits, including invaluable work experience, an expanded social network, healthy physical activity, meaningful engagement with your community, and a sense of belonging, all of which promote increased happiness," the RDOS wrote in a statement Monday.

"[The RDOS] would like to thank all volunteers for their continued dedication to supporting the improvement of communities across the region."
