A dedicated volunteer finds a new way to give back…

We have a sweet story to share today about one of our dedicated volunteers, Katie, who has been a volunteer with us for over ten years.

In the pre-COVID days, Katie volunteered her time in the kitchen at our Pender Street location. There, she would work with our Food Services team to prepare healthy and delicious meals for the youth in our Crisis Program and Rights of Passage Program.

When the pandemic hit, we had to limit volunteer shifts to minimize the risk of exposure for the young people. Katie still wanted to give back and found a way to help our youth receive a yummy meal.

North Point Brewing Co (Katie’s son Liam is an owner), Katie, and 2 of her friends, donated 12 frozen pizzas for a special meal. Our Food Services team served them for lunch recently and as you can imagine the pizza’s were a huge hit with the youth.

Thank you Katie and friends, Liam and North Point Brewing Co!
