I volunteer at my church, Punjabi Hindi Masihi Church, and with a volunteer group made by some of my peers called Aftershock. The group looks for local opportunities and events that requires volunteers. In the past, we have volunteered as servers, packaged flowers, done bottle drives and volunteered at several events around the city. It really emphasises the importance of volunteering not only as a way to help others in the community, but also as an outlet to meet new and diverse individuals and to create a bond with them. Canada is a friendly country and I believe volunteering further enhances the accepting and understanding nature of the people that live here.
