How do you give back to your community? There’s many ways to get involved with a cause that you believe in. You can volunteer your personal time, you can donate to a charitable program, or you can attend a fundraising event that a charity is hosting. One way our friends from Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) get involved is through Corporate Volunteer Days at Furniture Bank.  How Do RBC Corporate Volunteer Days Work? Every 6 weeks, a group of RBC staff from branches across Toronto come to Furniture Bank to help clients select furniture for their newly established homes. It’s a pleasure to see and experience both their positive energy and eagerness to support families and individuals on their journeys toward stability. We’re even beginning to see familiar faces come back month after month to volunteer and raise awareness of Furniture Bank’s work in the community. Such a delight!   [av_heading heading=’RBC Corporate Volunteer Day Highlights, April 22 2014′ tag=’h3′ color=” custom_font=” style=” size=” subheading_active=” subheading_size=’15’ padding=’10’ av_uid=’av-33zvdx’][/av_heading] [av_one_half first av_uid=’av-tae1z9′]RBC Volunteer   [av_heading heading=’Helping Clients Select Furniture’ tag=’h3′ color=” custom_font=” style=” size=” subheading_active=” subheading_size=’15’ padding=’10’ av_uid=’av-rkyz7p’][/av_heading] [/av_one_half] [av_one_half av_uid=’av-phoi1x’] [av_testimonials style=’grid’ columns=’1′ interval=’5′ av_uid=’av-ollnz9′] [av_testimonial_single src=” attachment=” name=’Karen’ subtitle=’RBC Volunteer’ link=’http://’ linktext=” av_uid=’av-mn20id’] I always look forward to the satisfaction of helping someone – making a difference in someone’s day.
