Happy National Volunteer Week to all our incredible Music Heals’ volunteers!

By Music Heals April 10, 2019

Thank you to all the amazing volunteers who selflessly donate their time to support the healing power of music across Canada. Thank you for believing in the power of music and for your gift of time. Music Heals’ volunteers are very generous with their gift of time by supporting our key events as well as ‘going on tour’ and supporting events that our partners produce to raise money to support music therapy services across Canada.

Volunteering and helping others can help reduce your stress, keep you mentally stimulated, combat depression, and provide you with a sense of purpose! It offers you the opportunity to help those in need within your community in order to help advance worthwhile causes.
