Community Impact Day Expand/Collapse

Sunshine Coast Trail Volunteers
In 2015 we celebrated our inaugural Community Impact Day, where we closed all of our branches from 2 to 5pm so that we could volunteer in our communities. In those 3 hours we volunteered a total of 420 hours and served 22 different non-profit organizations.

Based on the overwhelming positive feedback that we received from our members, staff, and the non-profit organizations, we have since made Community Impact Day an annual event.

Why do we celebrate Community Impact Day?
The purpose of our organization is to strengthen the well-being of our member-clients and make a meaningful community impact.  Community Impact Day is an opportunity to lend a hand and show our gratitude to some of the remarkable non-profit organizations that work every day for the benefit of others.
