TAKE ACTION SOC.: VOLS., WARMTH OF THE HEART - COMMEND

 

SUSAN LEBLANC: Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the efforts and kindness of the Take Action Society's Warmth of the Heart initiative for volunteers during their annual winter clothes giveaway. This latest cold snap is, for many, a brutal reminder our most vulnerable community members suffer even more during the winter months.

The initiative by the Take Action Society strives to change this by making this cold season a little bit easier. Every year they knit gloves, hats, and scarves to hand out to those in need. The Warmth of the Heart giveaway is yet another example of the members of Dartmouth North coming together to look out for those who need a little bit of extra help.

I'd like to thank members of the Take Action Society, including Jody Livingston, who helped organize this year's giveaway; members of the Knitting and Crafts Club for their time and effort knitting all the garments; and a special thanks to the young volunteers who showed us that a little kindness can go a long way.

Mr. Speaker, I ask that all members of the House join me in commending the volunteers of the Take Action Society's Warmth of the Heart initiative for another successful season.

THE SPEAKER « » : The honourable member for Kings West.
