City Announces Volunteer of the Year

Post Date:04/23/2021 9:56 AM

Whitehorse – Ashley Fewer is the City of Whitehorse Volunteer of the Year because of her extraordinary efforts in creating and maintaining the Yukon Helpers Network Facebook group, and supporting Whitehorse residents.

The group has become a valuable resource and a welcoming space for community members to seek out help. Fewer was nominated by the Rendezvous Rotary Satellite Club, and was chosen from an impressive group of 31 nominees.

“The Yukon Helpers Network just celebrated its first birthday and our community is thankful to Ashley Fewer and this initiative,” her nomination reads. “Ashley logs about 100 hours per week and, on average, connects with about 30 members per day; she is passionate about managing and maintaining community needs in any way she can.”

“Our community is full of incredible people who generously and selflessly give their time and energy, while expecting nothing in return,” said Mayor Dan Curtis. “We are truly grateful for everyone’s contributions and we appreciate your commitment to Whitehorse.”

Congratulations Ashley, and to all the volunteers who were nominated this year!

The City of Whitehorse has been celebrating its volunteer community since 1987.
