Volunteer Work

Giving Back



Playground Fundraising! 
Dedicated and active volunteer for bilingual school, and passionately fundraising for a school playground!

Adopt a family


Every year there are families that struggle to make ends meet for their basic needs, and at Christmas time with children this can be heartbreaking. I adopt a family each year between 3-5 members and provide food, toilet paper, clothes, toys, and any special items requested by the children on their wishlist in the hope of providing some joy during the holidays.
