Pioneer Manor Volunteers Recognized during Annual Luncheon

Apr 3, 2019

Pioneer Manor volunteers were recognized for their contributions today during an annual luncheon celebration. 

In 2018, the 140 volunteers contributed more than 5,800 hours of volunteer time, assisting with activities such as bingo, pet therapy, hairdressing, meal times, pastoral services, resident one-on-one visits, and more.

“Today, we honour the many volunteers who have generously given their time and unwavering compassion to the residents of Pioneer Manor,” said Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger. “Your dedication is inspiring. On behalf of City Council, I want to sincerely thank you for your contributions to our community.” 

The annual luncheon is held in advance of National Volunteer Week from April 7 to 13, 2019, which celebrates Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers.

“Our volunteers allow us to provide additional support in a number of areas,” said René Lapierre, Ward 6 Councillor and Chair of the Community Services Committee. “This support is invaluable to our residents and staff. We are very lucky to have this wonderful group and are truly grateful for everything they do.”

Pioneer Manor is a City-owned long-term care home, which provides comprehensive and individualized health-care services to 433 residents.
