My name is Pete Olsen and I’ve been hosting teams in Toronto for over 5 years teaching practically about homelessness. One of our key partners is the Good Shepherd.
I love bringing teams to the Good Shepherd where they can serve in such practical ways. I must admit it is fun to watch teenage boys make beds and fold fitted sheets. It never ceases to amuse me.
There’s always so much to do and when we run out of work Kathy always comes up with something creative. I remember standing out back with some of my team with a hose and brushes washing the dirt off pumpkins and squash. I remember the smell of some of my team after they spent a few hours cleaning and scaling Tilapia in the kitchen. They reeked for hours afterwards. I remember arriving with a large group that was promptly split – some going to beds and laundry but many assembling metal shelving for the clothing room. Never a dull moment.
My participants always come away with a sense of accomplishment as well as hope in the amazing work that the Good Shepherd is doing. Always accommodating, always grateful, the staff and volunteers at the Centre are a pleasure to serve beside and frankly, it’s a privilege to be a small part of the work going on here.
Thanks for including us. Thanks for being real. Keep up the amazing work as you serve “the least of these.”
