Battered Women’s Support Services would like to say a big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who play such an essential role in helping our organization provide support and advocacy services to women and work on systemic change. Last night, to honour the women and all their work, BWSS held a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. Thank you to Pondok Restaurant and Nancy Pang for helping make the night possible and lots of fun. The room was filled with 75 strong women who dedicate their time and effort to BWSS and to ending the violence against women by contributing to our Crisis and Intake Program, Women’s Support Group Program, Retail Program and our Office Volunteer Program. The evening was filled with inspiration, laughter, singing and dancing. It was a memorable night that could not have been possible without each and every one of you. From everyone at BWSS, thank you for volunteering your time with us and contributing to help end violence against women.
