Volunteer Coordinator with ServiceLink, working from the Burlington (ON) office.
I am a member of The Carpenteros and Friends, a group that began at Calvary CRC (Flamborough, ON) and has expanded to include members from several others CRCs and non-CRC churches. For the past 14 years, the Carpenteros have been supporting community development in Honduras through short-term service teams and various fundraising activities that support micro-finance cooperatives, agricultural and sanitation projects, health and nutritional training, justice advocacy, and crisis/emergency relief, in partnership with World Renew, Diaconia Nacional, and other Honduran partner agencies. Funds to support this work are primarily raised through the 'Building Hope for Honduras' banquet, normally held on the last Thurs. in September, and through a Valentine's Dinner.
