Volunteers from Telus, family members of residents and staff at the Kiwanis Care Centre got down and dirty cleaning the garden at the residential care facility over the weekend.

Volunteers, families and staff pull together for garden clean-up at Kiwanis Care Centre

Anne Moonan-Woods, manager at the North Shore Kiwanis Care Centre, fully admits to not possessing a green thumb. But she can pull weeds like the best of them.

A number of Telus volunteers, KCC families and staff joined Anne on Saturday helping prune, weed and declutter the flower beds in the back garden of the residential care facility to make room for spring planting.

“I want to thank all the Telus volunteers, family members and staff who spent quite a few hours volunteering  in the garden this Saturday.  ‎It was a very productive time and with so many people helping, you can really see the effects this morning,” Anne said Monday.

“Now all we need is a bit of warm weather so that the residents and family can spend time in the garden.”

The Telus volunteers were onsite as part of the company’s “We Give Where We Live” initiative. Non-profits such as KCC can apply for the opportunity for volunteers to help.
