Youth Volunteer Awards Spotlight – Carl
Carl is both a member and leader in our Random Acts of Kindness (REACH) volunteer group at PGSS. He attends weekly lunch meetings, and he inspires our junior members with ideas for kindness. His writing covers our white board and our younger members follow his strength and courage as they gain confidence! He presents our gifts of kindness or gratitude to students and teachers with quiet humility and eloquence. Daily, he adds ideas to our list of people who could use help or recognition. He buys gifts on his own time and out of pocket. He started our Pay-it-Forward Tim Horton’s gift card activity, and he made sure a young hockey teammate and friend whose father died of brain cancer in December received notes and a gift card from our group.
