2016 National Volunteer Week
The Past Commissioners Award is awarded annually to “an outstanding young man playing football for a CJFL team as well as contributing to his community”. While this award has been dominated by the BC teams in the past, the last two years have seen it come home to the PFC – and both to Wildcats. In 2014 Keaton Hoddinott was the recipient, followed in 2015 by Brandon Quach.
Part of our mandate as a team is to foster a spirit of philanthropy and giving back. While our on-field goals remain the priority, we also recognize the importance of helping our athletes grow off the field as well. By providing them the opportunity to volunteer with various organizations and service clubs throughout our city, we are both giving back to the community that our team calls home, as well as helping our athletes build their resumes and develop a passion for helping others.
In 2013, we officially launched our “In The Community” program as a trial, and have watched as our athletes have taken the initiative, embraced it and made it a part of their Wildcat experience. Over the next few days we will be celebrating National Volunteer Week by highlighting a few players who have been our biggest ambassadors “In The Community”.
