Happy National Volunteer Week!


As we work to rebuild our volunteer base at Bruyère, we’re excited to have the opportunity to celebrate our longstanding volunteers – join us in celebrating them and their impact on National Volunteer Week from April 16 to 22, 2023!

National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize the impact of volunteer service and their contributions throughout our organization. At Bruyère, we are very fortunate to have such a dedicated group of volunteers devoted to providing support and engaging with patients and residents.

This year, we have over 15 volunteers who will be marking 5 to 35 years of service!


Together, this group of volunteers has dedicated well over 50,000 hours, spending quality time and spreading cheer to those we serve.

We thank our Bruyère volunteers, and we are happy to have the opportunity to cheer you on.
