Celebrate Community Worker Appreciation Day- NOV 6

Join us as we celebrate November 6 – Community Worker Appreciation Day.  Many SEIU-West members work in the Community-Based (CBO) Sector; they work in residential/group home settings and provide services for the vulnerable, they assist with mobile crisis services, they provide day programs for the disabled and support their independent living, they work in child care programs, and they engage with clients in addictions counseling /treatment programs. CBO Word Search

It’s important to recognize this group whose work is crucial to the well-being of communities across the province. The work of CBO’s is especially vital today because they go to great lengths to cushion the effects of government cuts and understaffing, often at great personal cost.

In recognition of their valued work, SEIU-West invites you to participate in the Community Worker Appreciation Day Contest! Complete this word search for your chance to win some awesome prizes:

  1. Tickets to the Festival of Trees
  2. Tickets to the Stand! Movie
  3. A variety of gift passes to movies and restaurants

 

Email Jolomi.Gagar@seiuwest.ca with your answer by November 13, and you’ll be entered to win!
