|Claire, Christie and Dante at the Mustard Seed|
The Saskatoon ALSO group was at the MCC Centre this morning helping pack relief blankets and health kits. The staff and volunteers at MCC were really nice, and after a few instructions, let us jump right in and help them. Most of the health kits will go to people in conflict zones around the world, in particular Syria and Ukraine where the need is still high. It felt good to be doing something that we know will help, even a little.

Today we split up into two groups to do slightly different activities. The purpose of dividing up was to visit more agencies and to see the ways homelessness and poverty are addressed in Calgary. My group, which included Lisa, Thomas, Jaiden, Ivan and myself, went to the Alex Youth Health Centre (AYHC), the Salvation Army and the Inn from the Cold. The other group, made up of David, Allison, Claire, Dante and Christie, went to the Mustard Seed and did a learning activity downtown. We ended our day by meeting up together at a different Mustard Seed location.
