On April 12th, 2012 Geoff Bagg, CEO, The Bagg Group, channeled his inner ‘Bob The Builder’ and joined 24 of Toronto’s top CEO’s to launch National Volunteer Week by building homes with Habitat for Humanity Toronto. Trading in their smartphones for hard hats to build homes for six low-income families, Geoff and the other participating CEO’s saw National Volunteer Week as an important time to step up to the plate, roll up their sleeves and do something for others.
Habitat Toronto relies on volunteers to build affordable homes. With the affordable housing crisis at an all-time high, so is the need for volunteers. Events like National Volunteer Week are important in raising awareness toward the essential role of volunteerism.
