Things we’re involved with in the community
#CharityChallenge @ The Kelowna SPCA – Scale My Life
What inspires you to volunteer?I believe volunteering is one of the greatest things that anyone can do.It's fulfilling knowing you're making a positive impact on your local community, it's rewarding helping those that are in need of assistance, the atmosphere is always so inspiring and upbeat, and it's a place where I'm constantly challenged to try new things and get out of my comfort zone.If everyone volunteered just a couple hours a month, not only would the world be a much better place, but everyone would be much better for it.
What first inspired you to volunteer?As a young person I was actively involved in the cadet movement. This program taught me about the importance of giving time to others in order to improve our communities. I have always been eager to pitch in where I can.
Which cause are you most passionate about and why?I am most passionate about programs that involve empowering others to improve their current life circumstances. At times, we have all been faced with important decisions that have changed our life journey. Unfortunately, too many people are faced with circumstances that, at the time, are just not manageable alone. I volunteer because I know that I can make a difference by supporting someone through this journey. My interaction with them can be the difference.
