A big thank you to all who continue to give and it makes a difference in the lives of so many!
Neena has previously volunteered at Trout Unlimited, where she partook in their annual fish rescue.
This fish rescue is held annually by Trout Unlimited and Alberta Environment and Parks. This fish rescue is held to save trapped fish in the draining irrigation canals all across Southern Alberta. To date, over 880,000 fish have been rescued!
In addition to Trout Unlimited, Neena has been a long-time volunteer at Grow Calgary.

Grow Calgary is located on an 11-acre parcel of land just west of Canada Olympic Park and have been up and running for almost 4 years.
