We have had dozens of volunteers from the CFB Greenwood and the community this weekend to help make the new dining hall project  possible. They are working with us to build the accommodations needed for the partners to come and build our new year-round dining hall! We are so grateful to the Men and Women of the Canadian Armed Forces for their support and the community spirit. We are proud to count CFB Greenwood as a vital part of  our community and look forward to more great projects together. See below for a slide show of our weekend together.

We have other volunteer and professional opportunities for connection with the Dining Hall Project, both in advance and during the summer and fall. Contact us to find out more about this extraordinary project and how you can become involved.
