Volunteers Lifting our Community
By Jo Anne Malpass
Tod Wilson is one of the many volunteers on the North Shuswap who lift our community, he has served as president of the North Shuswap Community Association for the past two years.
National Volunteer Week, April 7 – 13, is a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. This year's theme is “The Volunteer Factor – Lifting Communities.” The Volunteer Factor celebrates and recognizes the exponential impact of volunteers and how they lift our communities.
When asked why he volunteers, Tod jokes there is an invisible V on the forehead of people who volunteer, “it’s a brand you can’t get rid of.” He has been volunteering for as long as he can remember and credits his mom and dad, who were always involved in church and lodge. Coming from a big family, he said, you learn how important it is to help family and others.
