I give back to Edmonton whenever I can – financially or with my time. I volunteer as a board member for Community Options, an organization that serves low-income families. Nobody wants to see children and families suffer in poverty, so that’s why I do it. By volunteering, you can really give, instead of receive, and it is quite fulfilling. Canada is a better place thanks to the volunteers who make a difference. There are a number of programs and projects out there that likely wouldn’t exist without the effort put forth by volunteers!
