Award for Excellence in Recreation Therapy Services
This year’s recipient for Recreation Therapy Services is the Recreation
Staff at Lions Personal Care Centre for their remarkable program “Helping
Hands”. The program brings together residents, families and volunteers
to make sandwiches and goodies for the homeless in Winnipeg. These are
picked up monthly by the Salvation Army Soup Van. The program has not
only benefited the community at large but it has created a feeling of
purpose and self worth for the residents.
