Nichers Give Back is our way of giving back to the community. We’re sending our team out individually and in groups to volunteer somewhere near and dear to their hearts. This march Glen Porter, our Director of Finance spent a morning at Evangel Hall Mission. This is Glen’s story:
Evangel Hall is an inner-city mission whose purpose is to build community with poor, homeless and socially isolated people in Toronto through support, housing, services and advocacy.
I've worked with Evangel Hall in the past and believe strongly in their mission and their community-oriented values and programs. This time around I helped to serve hot breakfast, soup, and lunch in the drop-in centre. It's always rewarding to volunteer at Evangel (or any other worthwhile initiative) as it allows for greater understanding and community connections.
Taking time to volunteer and make a difference in the community is an eye-opening reminder to have some empathy and compassion for your fellow citizens; help others and get outside yourself to gain some perspective.
Looking to get involved? Evangel is always looking for volunteers (http://www.evangelhall.ca/get-involved/volunteer/) and they accept clothing, sundries, and food donations. See their website or get in touch directly to see what their needs are and how you can help.
