Ontario Minor Hockey Association begins Volunteer Week promotion
The Ontario Minor Hockey Association has begun a new annual awareness campaign called “Thank a Volunteer Week.” The effort is intended to highlight the role played by hockey volunteers. It makes use of a website at <http://www.omha.net/thank-a-volunteer> that offers video profiles of volunteers, as well as materials for attracting new volunteers. Members of the association can also use the site to submit volunteers for future profiles. The promotion will take place during the last week of February each year.
“The OMHA considers volunteerism the backbone of our operations and without the commitment of time, effort and diligence, the association could not function with the efficiency it does today,” said Ian Taylor, executive director of the association. “This annual acknowledgement is just a small way to recognize their efforts and encourage others to share in that same passion. By profiling these giving people, we hope to highlight their committed efforts, as well as demonstrate the related joy they get out of their work.”
