Volunteer of the Month

August Volunteer of the Month -- Tom Pura


Congratulations Tom!

Here's a look back at why this Rock Star Volunteer was nominated as the Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Week: 

Suicide Prevention Resource Centre nominates Tom, a compassionate and willing volunteer for Men at Risk. He has been active as a facilitator with the SPRC program since 2002 and has done tons of presentations across the Peace Country to spread the message; asking, listening and getting help for mental health problems. Tom is a busy man but gives of his time to support others in finding their way through life's problems. He also volunteers for fundraising and survivor events. Tom's most recent contribution was to be a part of a new video targeting people in rural communities. Thank you Tom!

 As the winner of the Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Month draw, Tom has won a brand new Tim Hortons Coffee brewer! 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 Tom's case 10 cups of coffee in just 3 mins!


Hi there! Want me to show you where to get volunteering right away?
