I give back to Edmonton by volunteering at the University of Alberta Campus Food Bank. I volunteer because I believe that community is such an important thing. I believe that in order for our community to thrive, we must maintain a sense of unity, diversity and comfort. Establishing these values in our people will lead to the prosperity of current and future generations! Volunteering has definitely had a positive impact in my life, allowing me to experience first-hand a strong sense of community. The satisfaction of meeting such wonderful people, clients and other volunteers, as well as knowing that I was able to make a difference in my community is very empowering. Volunteering makes Canada a better place by really bringing people together and establishing a sense of community!
