Testimonials

To West Lincoln Community Care I am a single mother of three children. I recently left an abusive relationship and found myself on my own with my children with no car and very little money. I was fortunate enough to be able to turn to Community Care for support and help with groceries and sporting goods as well as a washer and dryer which I so desperately needed. I also felt respected and cared for by the good staff at…

To West Lincoln Community Care I’ve been going to the Food Bank in Smithville for a few months now and it has already made a huge difference in my life. It had also been my first experience going to a food bank and at first, I naturally felt embarrassed and awkward asking for that kind of help, but every time I stopped by I’ve been welcomed with friendly and genuinely good people. No one is judgemental or looks beneath you…

I look so forward to going into the WLCC food bank to volunteer.  The overall attitude is one of appreciation and compassion.   It’s easy to work with Sharlene and all of the volunteers who care deeply for each other and the amazing patrons of the food bank.   Every person I have met shows me a special part of themselves making my life a little richer. I am so grateful to be able to be involved with such an awesome organization.…

I have been a volunteer at WLCC for over five years. I was new to the area when I started and it was a way to meet people from the area and help out a good cause. I volunteer in the thrift store two half days a week and one Sat per month. I have met a lot of wonderful people  (customers and fellow volunteers) and I love what I do in the thrift store.

I enjoy volunteering at West Lincoln Community Care. It is very rewarding to know that simple things like donated coffee cups and tee shirts can be turned into a “loaf of bread” for a person in need in our community. We live in a very generous and very prosperous community. The amount of donations and the stream of shoppers, merge to provide for those who need a little assistance.  By volunteering a little of my time, I can help turn…

I began volunteering in November 2018 and I am so glad I did. I do not ‘feel’ like a volunteer, instead, I feel like a contributor to helping those in need in my community. I feel like part of a ‘volunteer’ family where not only do we jointly help our community but we also help one another on the job. We are part of a special family, we have fun, we share laughter, we feel pride for what we are…

My reason for volunteering was initially because I recently retired after working full time until the age of 74, and knew I needed to do something which would keep me connected to the real world! I chose WLCC because I have been an admirer and supporter for many years, and because it gives me the opportunity to give back to my community. I feel I get much more back than I give by volunteering. All the great people who work…

Dear West Lincoln Community Care, I am so grateful that you were there to help me between employment. I needed help with necessities while I job searched. My time job searching became a time of just getting by and surviving. Thank you for being there to help. I have a job now. My 2 young children who understand the value of love, community, money and giving thank you for your part in that. I may need you for little extras…

To West Lincoln Community Care, I have been on my own since I was very young and grew up mostly on the streets of a large city in Canada. A lot of people would say that I grew up in the gutter. I moved into West Lincoln with my girlfriend months ago in hopes of finding new employment and a better way of life. At first with no employment and few resources we were eating as little as 3 times…
