Terumi Kuwada volunteered as an Agency Liaison Volunteer – helping guide the direction and impact of United Way agency partners – for about 13 years.
“I always came to the resource centre for the Fruit & Veggie Market anyway, and one day they needed help,” said Manilyn of how she started volunteering.
“Everybody is going through some kind of a mess, and sometimes you don’t know how to go towards a positive direction.”
“Seeing how hard it can be to survive. When you don’t have money for the bus to go cash a cheque or pay a bill it really becomes clear – it’s a new perspective.”
