Next time you need to cheer yourself up, just think about volunteers.
Nearly half of Canadians volunteer their time, according to Statistics Canada. That’s more than 13 million people, donating the equivalent of 1.1 million full-time jobs.
Each year, 7,000 volunteers make the work of Good Shepherd Ministries possible, giving their time and energy to help the homeless and disadvantaged members of our community.
On Thursday, October 2, Good Shepherd Ministries held a recognition party to give thanks to all those wonderful volunteers.
Volunteers enjoyed an early Thanksgiving dinner. Lighthouse DJ Service filled up the dance floor – proving that, no matter how you look at it, Good Shepherd volunteers rock!
Eleven days later, on Thanksgiving Day, a team of 50 volunteers served 1,600 delicious turkey dinners to people in need.
Volunteers at Good Shepherd reflect the diversity of Toronto. They range in age from 13 to 90 years old. Some come once, as a part of a school or corporate volunteer group. Others come faithfully once a month, as a part of a meal-serving group, or once a week, to serve in the drop-in or clothing room.
Some volunteers never step into the building – they bake casseroles for the meal program in their own home, or organize clothing or food drives at their school, church, or place of work.
Young or old, one-time or repeat volunteer – each person who volunteers at Good Shepherd Ministries makes a real contribution. On behalf of everyone who relies on Good Shepherd for food, clothing and shelter – thank you!
