Tornado Dunrobin area

VOLUNTEER WORK: Supporting the victims of the tornado that devastated the region.

LOCATION: West Carleton High School, Dunrobin (35 minutes North West of Ottawa, past Kanata).



We each have our way of helping out, some with donations, others with prayers, and still others with their specialized skills like the tree-cutting crews, electricians, plumbers, roof builders and first responders (yes, several showed-up on their days off… simply amazing!) My way is to offer early intervention to individuals (to prevent trauma), talk to groups, support our volunteers, etc. Actually, it’s quite the feeling to be part of a community supporting those in need… and even those in need support each other. Minister Ralph Goodale asked really good questions yesterday. I’m hoping the federal Ministry of Public Safety will pull through with concrete gestures (for ex., money!!!), as will the provincial and municipal governments. Let’s think positive!
