Thanks to the generosity of Terrace residents, businesses and the many volunteers

One bright spot in the Terrace Standard’s feature on homelessness in the last edition was the general agreement that while a place to live might be tough to find, a hot meal is not.

That’s thanks to the generosity of Terrace residents, businesses and the many volunteers who work from the inside out, organizing and running community gardens, soup kitchens, canned food drives, etc. – people who give their time, money, and care, to make their neighbours’ lives a little better.

We’re so busy these days, it’s often difficult to schedule dinner with your closest friends, let alone pull together a food drive, softball tournament, pancake breakfast, or put in time at a soup kitchen – but people in Terrace do it every day, often quietly behind the scenes.

And many volunteers help out at the numerous events that take place annually. Some even go from assisting at one event to helping out at the next event and so on throughout the year. Even if volunteers just help out once a year, it’s a big help to the organizers of the event.

Terrace’s community spirit is out in full regalia this week for the city’s flagship event – Riverboat Days.

Volunteers from service clubs, church organizations, sports teams, community groups, prepare for this all year, and it’s a celebration for them just as it is for Terrace and the area’s history. So take a moment this week to thank these fine folks.
