Christine is in her final year studying finance at UBC. She also works part time at TD Canada Trust and has been volunteering with Meals on Wheels for almost a year. Christine got involved in the program after a colleague, who used to volunteer with Meals on Wheels, recommended it to her.
“I wanted to volunteer working with seniors, so this is a good fit for me. I love spending time with our clients and getting to know them. The best part about this role is hearing their stories and being able to talk to them about their lives. The social aspect of Meals on Wheels is the most important part to me, I know that lots of the clients really appreciate the interaction and I do too! I’d recommend this role to anyone who is empathetic and patient- with a good sense of direction! It’s really rewarding.”
