Maple Ridge, B.C., April 15, 2024 – In celebration of National Volunteer Week (April 14 to 20), the City of Maple Ridge is recognizing the invaluable contributions of volunteers.

This year’s theme for National Volunteer Week Every Moment Matters highlights and celebrates volunteers and their contributions to strengthen inclusivity and wellbeing in our communities.

“Our community is driven by our volunteers and their tireless efforts make Maple Ridge a better place for everyone,” said Mayor Ruimy. “I want to thank each and every one of our volunteers for all that you do to make a positive impact on the lives of others and being the backbone of our city.”

Volunteers are an essential part of the vibrancy of the City of Maple Ridge. They provide much-needed support in recreational programming, crime prevention, environmental programs, festivals, emergency support services, youth services and much more. Thousands of people also share their time and talents to support causes, such as raising money for charities, helping school Parent Advisory Councils, supporting youth and adult sports, arts groups or by helping a neighbour.

Celebrate Volunteers at Earth Day in Memorial Peace Park

As part of the Earth Day event taking place on April 20 (hosted by the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society), the City will be in the park celebrating volunteers and providing information about upcoming volunteer opportunities. Stop by the City tent for a free treat and to find an opportunity that meets your passion and talent. For full event details, visit 

“We have an exciting line up events taking place this year and I encourage everyone to volunteer to be part of the fun while making a difference in our community,” added Mayor Ruimy.
