Why I Give #GivingTuesday
When one thinks of Giving Tuesday, there so many ways to give. Wellspring Edmonton is very fortunate to have incredibly generous volunteers who give and give and give.
“Everyone needs a purpose” commented Joan Falkner. Every week, Joan shares her exceptional creative spirit with a team of volunteers who provide refreshments and baking for many special events. Joan also lends her love of decorating to make the seasons or holidays special. As a result, each and every person coming through the doors to attend any of our Wellspring programs feels a warm welcome along with kind and careful attention to their needs. Joan recalls her Dad who was “a fabulous volunteer – volunteering for absolutely everything!” The essence of his generosity stuck with Joan, and like her father, volunteering has given meaning and joy to her life. “At Wellspring, you see immediate results in the difference you can make to someone who is going through a cancer diagnosis and treatment. I knew before Wellspring opened that I wanted to be there right from the beginning, so I too, could grow along with Wellspring. It has been a privilege to give my time and talent to others.”
