Staff members at the Volunteer Centre of St Lawrence-Rideau are thanking everyone who contributed to a recent fundraising event.
“Dancing Stars of Leeds and Grenville,” an annual dance competition hosted by members of the organization, brought in $47,044 for the Volunteer Centre this year.
“Words cannot express how grateful we are for the support for this fundraising event to support the Volunteer Centre,” staff members say in a social media post announcing the results. “Thank you to everyone for your support.”
The money goes towards supporting initiatives the organization runs, like its “Community Volunteer Income Tax Program,” helping residents all over the Leeds-Grenville region file their income taxes for free.
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Dancing Stars event. To date, it’s raised roughly $250,000 for the Volunteer Centre.
