Access Communications Celebrates the Value of Volunteering Provincial Wide
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
Regina, SK – National Volunteer Week (NVW), April 15th to 21st, is time to celebrate the 13 million Canadian volunteers and recognize the selfless work they do to help those around them in our communities.
As a co-operative, Access Communications has a special connection with our volunteers. We are humbled by their enthusiasm and their commitment to the people of Saskatchewan, and we consider it an honour to work with them to give back to the communities we all hold so dear. In an effort to celebrate our volunteers and let them know how much they mean to us, Access hosts appreciation events in our major centres across the province during National Volunteer Week.
We are proud to contribute and make a difference to communities through our Access7 community channels and our registered charity – the Access Communications Children’s Fund – and through corporate initiatives including the Labour Day Show N Shine, Pumpkin Patrol and the Access Communications Scholarship Programs. Being focused on our communities and the families within are at the heart of what Access Communications is all about.
"One of the most important things about Access Communications is that we’re a co-operative. We aren’t just serving Saskatchewan — we’re a part of it in a way that many other companies just can’t be,” says Jim Deane, CEO, Access Communications. “National Volunteer Week gives us the chance to honour our over 450 volunteers for their time, energy and talent to improve the well-being of others and make our province an even better place to live."
