Last Thursday, a crew from the Roulant had the pleasure of attending Centraide’s Gala. The annual recognition event showcases the exceptional work of fundraising partners and the community organizations they support.

We were honoured that one of our long-time volunteers, Tássia Camões, was recognized for her leadership and outstanding contributions to the Santropol Roulant community.

The Solidaire NextGen is awarded each year to someone who has done exceptional work in the community in terms of involvement, leadership, original projects and lasting outcomes.  Tassia is just one of hundreds of volunteers each year who contribute to the daily operations and success of the Roulant and for that we are truly grateful! In some ways this award recognizes all of the volunteers whose leadership shines at the Roulant, and any of the other ways our members are similarly engaged with the SR community.

Along with the prize, Santropol Roulant was also granted $10,000! Thank you once again to Centraide for your ongoing support over the last thirteen years and to Tassia for everything you do for seniors, volunteers and urban fruits!

Check out this short video that highlights the meals-on-wheels program and volunteers like Tassia who make it all possible.
