I haven’t been in Canada long, but I feel a strong sense of belonging when I volunteer. As a university student, the need for an organization like the Campus Food Bank is obvious. Donating your time and effort can really help put life into perspective and help develop a sense of the world around us. Furthermore, my time as a volunteer also serves as a stress reliever. To be able to focus on something or someone, other than my responsibilities as a student, helps alleviate the tension that is so common in the post-secondary world. We live in this great, multicultural society, but for that to be successful – I believe we all should spend some time helping others.
