The last week in April was National Volunteer Appreciation Week, and again we want to thank all the amazing volunteers in our organization who selflessly give their time and expertise to making our community better.
Theresa is one of those volunteers and throughout Fall 2022, she volunteered 285 hours with several of our Service Areas.

Earth Day 2022
Earth Day usually sees New Directions staff gathering together and picking up trash around our office buildings.
This year, with our main office still under repair, we decided to encourage staff to spend some time cleaning their own neighbourhoods.
