C's story

I like to be helpful, I like to volunteer, you know...give back. I think of myself as a humanist. You have to care about humanity, otherwise you're not much of a human.

There are so many people out there, sometimes they need a little help, sometimes...alot. Black, white, green, rich, poor, it doesn't matter.

I believe in karma, that your actions can affect people in good or bad ways. For me it's a simple rule, treat others how you would like to be treated.

That is why I am a volunteer for the Mens Meal program at Egerton United Church. I got involved through Crouch Neighbourhood Resource Centre. The Mens Meal serves really good food and is a warm and easy going environment. It's a new experience for me, it gets me out into the community and I have gotten to know a ton of new people. It's nice to see people come together, socialize and enjoy a warm and healthy meal.
