I volunteer to drive with Drive Happiness Seniors Assisted Transportation; I work their bingos and casinos as well. I like driving for them, and meeting and helping people. Especially when you call a client the night before and let them know you’ll pick them up – it really brightens their day. I lost my wife six years ago, so it gives me some satisfaction helping people get out when otherwise they might not be able to. It also gives me the chance to get out instead of staying at home. Volunteering is very Canadian in nature; I think it fills us all with pride when you give back to others.
