I volunteer at the Hope Mission once a week during breakfast shift – serving everybody! The clients there need to eat, and I feel like volunteering my time is better value than just throwing money at the problem. I know it’s not a fix for the problem, but it helps! Volunteering provides me with a certain sense of satisfaction – doing for others without asking anything in return. Canada is better thanks to the volunteer community; you meet like-minded people and get out in the community, helping with issues that society deals with.
