The Heart and Soul of Our Work
Over 2,000 members of the community, including service users, students, parents and grandparents, volunteered their time to support their neighbours.
You gave almost53,000hours of your time! We could not do it without you.
On behalf of our staff and the people we serve, thank you for your generosity!
An integral member of the volunteer team who serves weekly home-cooked meals to over 100 guests, John is early for every shift, the last one to leave and even gives other volunteers a ride home. He always ensures safety protocols are being followed, whether it’s food preparation or the safety of volunteers.
During the pandemic, John was concerned that many people who relied on the Community Dinner didn’t have access to a hot meal. Knowing that it wasn’t safe for seniors to travel because of health issues, John took it upon himself to deliver grocery hampers from our food bank and meals from our Community Dinner.
“I volunteer because it makes me feel good but during the pandemic, I volunteered because there are those who need us more than ever”.
On behalf of the seniors we serve, thank you John for your commitment and passion to help those in need.
