I volunteer with The Red Shoe Society. We help raise funds through various events. It keeps me busy and active in my community. I’m not from Edmonton, and volunteering has always been a great way to meet people. I value family and community, and volunteering is a perfect fit. It enriches my life by keeping me active; it helps show my children the importance of community and helping others. I think volunteerism makes Canada a better place by showcasing the extensive efforts put forth by the entire volunteer community. To let others know that there are people out there who can help.
