Volunteer of the Month

September 2016 Volunteer of the Month - Carissa Giesbrecht

September Carissa

The winner of our Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Month draw for September is Carissa Giesbrecht! Carissa was nominated by Grande Prairie & District Victim Services as our September 13th Volunteer of the Week. As September's Volunteer of the Month Carissa has won a brand new Tim Hortons Coffee brewer!

Congratulations Carissa!

Here's a look back at Carissa's Volunteers of the Week nomination from Grande Prairie & District Victim Services.

"Grande Prairie & District Victim Services would like to applaud Carissa Giesbrecht for being part of our team.  Carissa is a fairly new advocate, who is a very kind-hearted and considerate individual.  Carissa is eager to take part in in any training that would benefit her role as an advocate.  Victim Services is honoured to have Carissa with us.  Thank you Carissa!"

The staff and board of the GPVSB thank our sponsors at Tim Hortons for helping us fuel the volunteers of Grande Prairie one cup of coffee at a time, or in Carissa's case 10 cups of coffee in just 3 mins!
