I had the great pleasure of volunteering today at the Good Shepherd Ministry in Toronto. The Good Shepherd is a facility that offers everything from a hot meal and clean clothes to someone to listen and help. They truly make a difference and an impact on the community!

Getting ready before the doors open!

Every day from 2-4pm, they offer hot meals to everyone who walks in through the door. It is the largest free meal program in the City of Toronto! I took a day off from work to come help with the busy afternoon. It was my first time visiting and it was so great to meet all the staff and other volunteers!

The whole experience was so rewarding and insightful. I had the opportunity to meet and chat with many of the individuals who dropped by for a meal. Everyone was pleased that Miss Toronto was their lunch server for the day 😀 Special thanks to the PwC Canada Foundation for partnering up with the Good Shepherd and giving employees a paid day-off from work to volunteer!
