Volunteers in the Municipality of the County of Cumberland have stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic to support families, friends, neighbours, and strangers, people standing up to systemic racism, and people sharing insights on how to create a more just and equitable society. Volunteers here mentor our children, support those feeling isolated, beautify our green spaces, and fundraise for our charitable organizations. The collective result of the work done by our municipality’s volunteers is that our communities are a more caring and desirable place to live.

The 2022 Municipality of Cumberland Volunteer Recognition Celebration is planned for Wednesday, April 27 for nominated individuals and their guests.
