VANCOUVER - Premier Christy Clark made the following statement on National Volunteer Week:

"The volunteers in our communities enrich our lives with their time, compassion and daily acts of selflessness. National Volunteer Week is dedicated to recognizing these unsung heroes who make such a big impact with each and every hour of service, and this week we thank them and celebrate their commitment.

"Later this month, this year's recipients of the Community Achievement Awards will be recognized in an official ceremony at Government House in Victoria. Each of these individuals is a wonderful example of how the simple gifts of personal time, dedication and energy can make a positive difference in our province."

"This National Volunteer Week, I encourage all British Columbians to thank the volunteers in their community and to get active and make a difference in someone's life. Your time is the most valuable and meaningful gift you could donate."
