Volunteers are helping to turn dreams into reality

“It just makes them feel more comfortable in a more relaxed setting and they can actually enjoy being a child, use their imagination,” Women’s Resource Society Chair, Sherry Marshall said. “It just helps them cope with being removed from a home that they’re used to being in and now a new surrounding.”

Lindsay Carmichael, an employee of Spectra Energy, brought with her 20 volunteers, 15 of which were Spectra Energy employees (or children of employees), coupled with volunteers from Synergyaspen Environmental and the Women’s Resource Society. 

The group managed to mow and weed-whack the entire complex; build teeter-totters, a picnic table, a play house and a climbing structure; paint picnic tables; and construct a large play structure.  

The play structure took a number of volunteers a couple of hours over the estimated time budget for the project, however, they chose to stick with it and get it done.

Marshall says the vision of a new play centre couldn’t have been made possible without the help of numerous volunteers, grants, donations and discounts from companies around the city.

“I just want to thank our community,” Marshall said proudly. “They really come through when non-profits need them.”
