Third Annual Volunteer Appreciation Brunch
This is an annual event to recognize 100 of the tireless volunteers within 10 organizations throughout Wellington County, who give so much of themselves and expect so very little in return.
In addition, the Rotary Club of Guelph South will be making donations to each of the selected organizations as a ‘thank you’ for everything that they give to those in need. At the 2017 event, $10,000 was distributed among the 10 volunteer organizations.
For the last 40 years, Wyndham House has been synonymous with serving homeless youth. While the pathways into homelessness are complex, a way off the streets is clear. Wyndham House provides youth with housing and educational alternatives, social supports and programming that supports a successful transition into adulthood.
