Volvo Cars Volunteer of the Month program
Published on April 28th, 2015
Volvo Cars of Canada and Sail Canada have announced the Volvo Cars Volunteer of the Month program. Volvo Canada has joined Sail Canada in recognizing volunteers from across the country who are dedicated to the sport of sailing. The program is designed to showcase volunteers who support their sailing community through participation with their club or school by activating events or involvement with boards and committees.
Sail Canada is largely made up of volunteers from coast to coast who are hardworking, selfless and who tirelessly contribute to sailing initiatives. Volvo Canada is committed to supporting these volunteers who are a large reason why sailing’s legacy in Canada continues to flourish. Sail Canada’s members share a high-level of passion for their sport and Volvo Canada is proud to support their passion and commitment.
“Volvo Canada is pleased to recognize volunteers dedicated to Canadian sailing as an extension of our existing partnership,” said Marc Engelen, President & CEO of Volvo Cars of Canada. “Volunteers actions often go unnoticed and we feel this is a great opportunity to identify key individuals whose hard work and dedication helps grow the sport of sailing in Canada.”
Paddy Boyd, Executive Director of Sail Canada welcomes the support of Volvo Canada in highlighting volunteers in our sailing communities. “Volunteers are fundamental to the success of our sailing clubs, sailing schools and regattas. The Volvo Cars Volunteer of the Month program will showcase these outstanding volunteers throughout the year.”
The first Volvo Cars Volunteer of the Month will be named May 2015.
