Langford, local businesses team up to honour volunteers

Still opportunities for businesses to get involved in program

The City of Langford is looking for businesses to join them in a unique opportunity.

Not only was Saturday (Dec. 5) International Volunteer Day, the City has earmarked 2016 as the Year of the Volunteer. In celebration of that, a new initiative has been launched to help recognize community members who donate their time and energy to make Langford a better place.

In partnership with local businesses and the WestShore Chamber of Commerce, a volunteer recognition card is being created that will entitle the holder to a 10-per-cent discount at participating businesses. Merchants have until Thursday (Dec. 10) to sign up to participate in the program. Contact the City of Langford at 250-478-7882 or the Chamber at 250-478-1130 for more details.
