This summer, I’ve focused on some volunteer work to better my community. I have been volunteering with various organizations over the years, but I wanted to make sure that my experiences this year would revolve around local organizations and my Beauty with a Purpose project. I personally believe that giving back to others who need help can make all the difference in the world. My experiences have allowed me to develop professional relationships and connect with various community members, learn new skills, and take on challenges I have never encountered before!
This year, I had the privilege of volunteering with the Prince Albert Grand Council (PAGC), who were distributing various care packages across the community to those in need. PAGC is a First Nations organization consisting of numerous reserves; their goal is to be a unified voice to address various concerns that First Nations individuals encounter on a day to day basis. When the COVID pandemic hit home, many people were caught off guard leaving many seniors and families lacking basic necessities. The care packages that we delivered to multiple homes in the Prince Albert area included meals, groceries, and basic toiletries. My heart was filled with joy as I was able to see the impact a simple act of kindness made in other people’s lives. A huge thank you goes out to PAGC for allowing me to partner with them for this experience.
