It takes a village – to feed a village

Contributed by Gerald Michaud – Broker/ Manager HomeLife/ Realty One

For several years now, Homelife Realty One has been volunteering in support of Nelson Mandela Park PS’ Breakfast Club Program. Our office has provided countless volunteer hours thanks to the passion and leadership shown by our very own star volunteers: Jason McGregor and Thadd Nettleton.

 
For many years, Jason McGregor has promoted the program, and recruited and coordinated volunteers.  As the Program’s champion, Jason does this work with joy and enthusiasm which spreads to everyone it touches in our office not to mention the children staff and volunteers at the school

 
Not only does Jason promote healthy eating, but he also makes sure the children don’t go hungry in terms of positive socialization and healthy respect for one and all.   It didn’t take long for Jason to connect with the children, their parents, and the staff of the school.  He knows everyone by their first name and offers each kindness and a smile. It is heartwarming to watch them happily share the ins and outs of their lives with him whether the conversation be about sports, cars, games or other favorite topics.

 
The time has come where the program requires more volunteers and we are looking for members of our community that would like to help for an hour in the morning Monday – Friday to serve breakfast and prepare snacks for the day.
The Breakfast program is a significant benefit to all the children and their families.  The Program benefits society because it removes a major impediment to the children’s success.  Our volunteer’s dedication has helped hundreds of children succeed in school.  This in turn has been a tremendous benefit to our community.
