Around the Web – Giving Back
we are always pleased and surprised to find wonderful articles around the internet mentioning Multi Shelters, and here’s one I came across today that I thought I’d share with you! Thank you for the mention endchildpoverty.ca! wonderful initiatives you are doing! https://www.endchildpoverty.ca/share-your-news.html
Norm Eygenraam, of Palmerston United Church in Ontario, is the owner of Multi-Shelter Solutions. On May 10, 2016, in partnership with the Breakfast Club of Canada, he presented a 20’x48′ greenhouse to the Johnny Therriault School, located in the Aroland First Nations community. Norm felt very blessed to be part of the unbelievable excitement surrounding this project. The greenhouse, in addition to actually growing more fresh food for the community, will also serve as a teaching tool to show the children how to grow food. In his address, Norm focused especially on hope and gratitude. Hope in knowing that there is a brighter future and that there are people out there who care.
Norm and his wife also purchased gardening books for the teachers and children to use as a resource. As well, they contributed plant starter kits (mini greenhouses) so that each classroom was able to begin growing plants immediately. In addition, he brought along a supply of easy-to-grow vegetables, including green and yellow beans, peas and onions. Finally, he provided 6 very large bags of compost to help the children build up the soil. Thank you Norm for your inspirational example of generosity, compassion and caring.
