Volunteer of the Month - November 2015

Magdalena Manu is Immigrant Services Calgary’s Volunteer of the Month!

Volunteer Nov2015

 

Magdalena was born in Romania and has been living in Canada for over 30 years. She joined ISC to help new immigrants settle into their new life. Her favourite volunteering role as a Community Volunteer is helping to make food hampers at Inn from the Cold’s emergency shelter which strives to end homelessness in Calgary. She also helps out at Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra’s community concerts and educational series.

“Being named volunteer of the month is a great honor. When I decided to become a volunteer with Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC), I was looking to become involved in my community, and, as an immigrant myself, wanted to help newcomers in any way I can. What I didn’t realize was how enriched my life would become due to volunteering for ISC and other community programs."

 

 

"I have met some great people, heard some great stories, have had many laughs, many enlightening moments, and always walked away feeling like I had made a difference that day. ISC is an organization that not only helps newcomers to Canada but reaches out to the community at large. Their volunteers are everywhere and I am proud of being part of its legacy.”

 

Congratulations Magdalena!
