We’re very please to share this great story. We have so many amazing volunteers who give so much to make a difference in the lives of GTA kids. Kathy Bodnar is one of our best. Kathy’s been volunteering with the Peer Project for 12 years!
Kathy became a Peer Project mentor at the age of 16. She jumped in a made a huge impact in the life of Tara, her junior (mentee). Twelve years later, they’re still in touch, and both have grown up to be successful professionals and amazing members of their communities.
In 2011, Kathy joined the Peer Project’s Board of Directors, and became treasurer in 2014. She’s the organizer of our annual 24-hour Spin-a-thon, and we thrilled and honoured to have such a dedicated and caring volunteer on our team!
Thank you Kathy for all that you do!
We couldn’t do it without you!
As part of National Volunteer Week, Kathy was awarded a 2015 Volunteer Toronto Legacy Award. Volunteer Toronto’s Legacy Awards celebrates 25 Toronto volunteers for their outstanding contributions to the community. From mentors to fund raisers to educators, the Awards shine a light on the secret super heroes whose efforts are often unknown outside their local community.

She is the epitome of volunteerism and commitment, and we are very fortunate to have her on our team.”
