SELF CARE SUNDAY

Sunday, April 7,  1-5pm at the Sherwood Park Log Cabin, 50 Spruce Avenue

Volunteer Strathcona and our National Volunteer Week sponsor Imperial Oil is extremely excited to be hosting our first ever self-care event. We recognize and value the importance of volunteers within all communities and wish to celebrate our local volunteers with the gift of self-care. We have a wide range of wellness vendors lined up who will be sharing the many ways to approach self-care and cannot wait to greet and meet all of our community volunteers who attend.

Volunteering takes time, effort, energy and skill sets that can be an additional workload above the regular day to day functions.  We are inspired by their selflessness and it is our wish to be able to “fill their cup” as they do for others. This is a FREE event (trade fair style) for volunteers of all ages and will focus on educating individuals on the importance of taking the time to care for themselves.
