I volunteer at a number of places; the volunteer fair and the Edmonton Northwest Senior’s Society come to mind. I do it because I have the free time and I like to give back! I’m new here and it’s been a good way to meet people, it’s a welcoming past time and I have fun! I’m new to Canada but I can see how positive and effective volunteering can be in the community. I don’t know how volunteering operates in other countries, but it really shows Canadian pride.
