United Way’s Day of Caring helps Hart Pioneer Centre

United Way British Columbia is holding a Day of Caring with a team of student volunteers from Cedars Christian School to help the Hart Pioneer Centre with the clean up and preparation of facility gardens.

Due to the generous help of student volunteers from Cedars Christian School the United Way was able to help make possible the garden clean up for the centre which serves predominantly seniors and supports community initiatives. It is the only senior centre in Prince George that is owned and maintained by its members.

At Cedars Christian School, one of its core values is “we prioritize having our students engage in service work within our community multiple times a year. We believe that our community thrives when we come together to support one another.”

“We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with the United Way Northern BC and assist the Hart Pioneer Centre. We see this connection as the beginning of a lasting partnership through our service day program, where we aim to provide ongoing support to our community,” said Dave Rowland, Director of Community Engagement, Cedars Christian School.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors and Members of Hart Pioneer Center, we are thrilled to have a team of student volunteers from Cedars Christian School for their time and effort to prepare and to clean up the south side garden at the Centre,” said Lorraine Prouse, President Hart Pioneer Centre. “Prior to COVID-19, the gardens had a street appealing sight with the many garden volunteers from the centre. Since COVID-19, the enthusiasm and help has diminished, and weeds have slowly taken over. Thank you to United Way for the project Day of Caring and to the student volunteers from Cedars Christian School. Words cannot express our gratitude for this project.”
