Volunteer Recognition Awards
2021 Volunteer Stories
The City is invited the community to submit stories and photos showcasing the people, businesses or groups that have provided unpaid help or support to others in Port Coquitlam over the past year.
The submitted stories and images will be shared with the community as a way to build community spirit. 20 entries will be randomly selected to win $100 gift cards – sponsored by Fortis BC – to the Port Coquitlam business of their choice. The campaign, entitled Volunteers Help Get Us Through, is a reformatting of the annual Port Coquitlam Volunteer Recognition Awards event held each spring given large gatherings are not permitted at this time.
The volunteers highlighted in each story will be presented with a commemorative pin and a city branded mask.
Thank You to Our Sponsor
The City’s 2021 volunteer recognition efforts will again be sponsored by Fortis BC, which supported Port Coquitlam’s awards for 22 consecutive years.
