Tim Hortons Volunteers of the Week

Liz McCallum

October 17, 2017

Liz McCallum: Community Social Development

Community Social Development nominates Liz McCallum. Liz and Suzanne Brooking Bond have been volunteering their time to instruct the Roots of Empathy program for 5 plus years in Grande Prairie. Each year they teach 2 or more classes to make sure that our children don’t miss out on the opportunity of having the program in their classes. CSD would like to thank them for their dedication and their vital role in bringing Empathy to Alberta’s Classrooms. Without them, the program would not be as successful in Grande Prairie.

Estelle N'Guessan: Grande Prairie Centre for Newcomers

Estelle is a busy mom of 3 children, but very interested in sharing her every free minute with the community.  Even with her busy everyday life, Estelle proved herself as a punctual and committed volunteer. When one of the confirmed participants couldn’t make it Estelle in a very short notice stepped in and created a beautiful booth for Ivory Coast with her kids during Heritage (Kermes) day at the GP Museum. She helped GPCN to facilitate Multicultural Crafts during Alberta Culture Days. She even marched in the Canada Day Parade with us! There are not enough words to say how grateful we are to have Estelle as our volunteer. Thank you so much for all that you do!

Raina Gardner

Raina Gardener: The Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning

The Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning would like to nominate our volunteer tutor Raina Gardner. Raina continues to provide support to our ESL learners. Her learner received a higher position in her workplace because of Raina’s guidance and knowledge in teaching pronunciation. Raina is assisting another learner with his writing and speaking. We thank Raina for her time and expertise, always making herself available to support another learner. We value and appreciate all that she does to help her learners succeed!

Kristi Sak

Kristi Sak: Grande Prairie Broncos

The Grande Prairie Broncos nominates Kristi Sak for Volunteer of the Week. Kristi is the merchandise coordinator, and president’s assistant, and has been an active member of the board for 2 years now. Kristi tends to be the background backbone of the Broncos organization. She is always ready to take on any new requests of the board and never bats an eye at new ideas. Kristi single-handedly takes on merchandise planning and ordering of all fan apparel. The Broncos are very thankful that Kristi puts in countless hours for the team during spring camp, regular season and in the off-season to ensure that the only worry coaches and players have is playing the game they love.  She has an infectious giggle and is at every practice & game cheering on all of the players as if they were her own, Kristi Sak you are a Rock Star!!

Mary Ann L. Meru

October 11, 2017

Mary Ann L. Meru: Grande Prairie Centre for Newcomers

Mary Ann started volunteering with us as soon as she arrived to Canada in May 2017. She was very eager and excited to meet and help people in any possible way. Mary Ann started as an Administrative Volunteer around 6 months ago but in that short time she has become an invaluable part of our small team. Her main responsibility is to help relieve us at the reception when we are short staffed or need an extra hand. She helps us to greet and direct walk-in clients to settlement practitioners, answer phone calls and file the records. Mary Ann is a responsible volunteer because we can always rely on her to come in during her volunteer shift and she often comes in on short notice. During her volunteering in the office she’s always keeping herself busy and looking for extra tasks to help the team. In addition to administrative duties Mary Ann gladly provided help in preparation for our cultural exchange activities during Alberta Culture Days in collaboration with the GP museum and GP Public Library.  We would like to thank Mary Ann for being such a great help to GPCN team.
