Kid's Help Phone - Bell Walk for Kids
May 1, 2005

Hi Adele,

On behalf of the Walk committee, I just wanted to thank SVC for providing such hardworking volunteers on Sunday, May 1st for the Bell Walk for Kids Help Phone. The volunteers were unbelievable, working hard with smiles on their faces, and seemed to enjoy being there. We raised over $225,000 in Calgary alone, and over $2,100,000 across Canada for the Kids Help Phone agency, and could not have done it without our volunteers. For that, we thank SVC and your volunteers. Someone will be getting in touch with you again regarding the Volunteer Appreciation, as well as sending thank you letters.

Again, thank you!

Between Friends Club - Book Sale

Hi Adele

I just wanted to pass a HUGE THANKS along through you to the 2 great teams of volunteers that came out to help us out at our book sale! The sale was a big success, raising over $3000 for our club!

The volunteers this weekend were so outstanding and worked so hard! Special thanks to Gordon on Saturday for coordinating the troops, he did a great job. And please thank the Sunday coordinator for me as well, I didn’t get a chance to meet him/her, but I heard wonderful things about the Sunday group as well!

We really want to thank you again for your commitment to our club, your support means a lot to us!

Between Friends Club - Used Book Sale
April 9 & 10, 2005

Hi Adele

I was away last week directly after Skate a Kid, but wanted to make sure that I sent out one big last thanks to your incredible group of volunteers this year!

This year’s event ran more smoothly than any year before, and I like to think that a big part of that is because of the great dedicated group that Single Volunteers of Calgary provides us with!

This year’s event raised over $63,000 for Camp Bonaventure, a new record!

Please pass on our sincere thanks to all of the volunteers from your agency that helped us make the event such a huge success!

Crohn's and Colitis Foundation
M&M Meats Fundraiser
May 15, 2004

Hi Adele,

The BBQ was a success, thanks to your great people. Things went well at the 130th location, we could have managed with about 8 people, I believe that is how many were there for the morning shift. We do thank you for your help.

I just heard that the cross country BBQ brought in $1,350,000.00, what a boost for CCFC in our search for the Cure. The location at 130th did bring in $1490.00, that was down about $100.00 from last year. (I do believe the weather played a big part in out drop, last year was a very warm day.)


Maybe we will get to meet more of you good people next year, they are very friendly and easy to work with.

Take care,
Judy CCFC Volunteer

Alberta Arthritis Society - Sausage Fest
November 15, 2003

Hi Adele How are you?

I can't say enough about your volunteers for the sausage fest, this dinner was only successful in part of your singles volunteers, they didn't wait for the leaves to drop, they dove, with their tireless effort we raised 3700.00. for the ALBERTA ARTHRITIS SOCIETY.

I have been doing charity dinners for 9 years and I've never seen drive that would lap the rest.

Sincerely Gordon Sinclair

Habitat for Humanity
June 2001

Hello Single Volunteers Society of Calgary!
I am one of the very lucky people that has been given the opportunity of a lifetime (for me, anyway) to purchase a home built by Habitat for Humanity and its many volunteers. It was a pleasure to meet and work with the team of single volunteers at the Habitat build site in Ogden, Calgary on Saturday June 2, 2001. Thank you all for your hard work and support!

Habitat for Humanity
December 2000

Dear Cameron:

On behalf of the Board of Directors, myself, and especially the families who will soon be occupying a new Habitat home, thank you. The support of your group in the construction of our six homes has provided a substantial contribution toward our goal for the year 2000.

Your dedication of time and effort makes these homes possible. You have all assisted Habitat to fulfill its commitment to build homes with low-income families who would not otherwise be able to afford the cash payments necessary for the purchase of a home.

Another Habitat ‘hand up-not a hand out’ will soon be realized.

Up to the end of 1999 Habitat volunteers in Calgary had built 22 homes, housing 79 children. Habitat worldwide, this year, achieved the completion of 100,000 homes. You have had a role in reaching our dream of some day eliminating poverty housing. Habitat's plan for the year 2001 consists of building another four homes and we look forward to your continuing help.

Again, thank you to you and your group as another family's dream come closer to reality.

Best wishes for a peaceful and safe holiday season.

Bill Campbell
Volunteer Coordinator
