Carl Weise - Volunteers of Toronto

Volunteer at Humber Community Senior Services

“Volunteering saved my life. My health problems had me so down I was ready to give up. All the positive encouragement I got from all the staff at HCSS and the volunteers and the clients made me feel better and better. Even my doctors could not believe my progress.”
